Roadrunner Transportation Systems Promotes Two Executives

June 8, 2011 - Cudahy, WI

Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. (NYSE: RRTS) today announced that Scott Dobak has been promoted to President of Roadrunner's Less-than-Truckload (LTL) segment and Brian van Helden has been promoted to President of Roadrunner's Truckload segment. Dobak will be responsible for all operations and sales within the LTL segment and van Helden will be responsible for all of the company's truckload operations.

"Over the course of the past five years, we have significantly changed our company. We have evolved from being strictly a long-haul LTL carrier to offering a full-service transportation solution to our customers. In 2010, we launched an IPO and took our company public. In doing so, we positioned ourselves for continued growth and acquisitions. Our vision for the future is to continue to grow the company organically and create a significant presence through additional strategic acquisitions. The new management structure will enable us to effectively drive results with a more concentrated focus in each segment," said Mark DiBlasi, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Dobak joined Roadrunner in January 2007 as Vice President, Sales and Marketing. Since joining Roadrunner, Dobak has restructured and substantially upgraded the sales organization while being accountable for the implementation of initiatives that resulted in significant revenue growth both organically and through the expansion of customers. Prior to joining Roadrunner, Dobak held leadership positions with Yellow Transportation, Inc., most recently as Vice President, Corporate Sales.

Van Helden joined Roadrunner in April 2007 as Vice President, Operations. Van Helden has been integrally involved in upgrading the quality of service to customers, while driving operational cost savings and initiatives within the company's terminals. Prior to joining Roadrunner, van Helden held various management positions with Fed Ex Ground.
