Philadelphia, PA, May 11, 2018 – CLX Logistics, LLC, a leader in global logistics services, announced the appointment of David Vieira as its new Chief Executive Officer. Vieira takes on this strategic role after three years serving as the Company’s President and Chief Operating Officer. His predecessor, Steve Hamilton, now serves the Company as Chairman.
“I have witnessed David evolve in his role and contribute a great deal to CLX’s growth and success during the past three years, and I am excited about where he plans to take CLX Logistics as our new CEO,” said Hamilton, who has since stepped down as Chief Executive Officer but will serve as Chairman to help guide the Company’s strategic growth with foresight and historical data.
During Hamilton’s 21-year tenure as CEO, he led the Company through a number of enhancements to its suite of logistics management, technology and supply chain consulting services, including building its chemical logistics division, ChemLogix.
Vieira brings more than two decades of executive logistics expertise to his new role, having seen great success throughout his career working for organizations like MXD Group, Inc. and Exel Direct, Inc.
