XPO Logistics has named Jay Silberkleit as its next chief information officer, replacing Mario Harik, who is being promoted to CEO.
XPO noted Silberkleit, the company’s senior vice president of technology, started with XPO in 2012 as vice president of enterprise architecture and “was instrumental in the creation of XPO’s technology ecosystem, including its digital brokerage platform.”
“Jay has been a driving force behind the ongoing success of our proprietary technology since the early days of XPO,” Harik said in the release. “Jay’s expertise will be pivotal when XPO emerges from the spin-off as a standalone LTL company.”
Harik, who is also serving as president of XPO’s LTL North American operations, began as CIO there in 2011.
