Crowley Maritime Corp. announced that Carl Fox will assume the role of senior vice president of corporate services on June 1. Fox will continue to work out of the company's Jacksonville office while reporting to Bill Pennella, Crowley's vice chairman and executive vice president.
In his new position, Fox joins the company's senior leadership team
and will manage several departments, including Information Technology; Corporate Communications; Human Resources; Safety, Security, Quality and Environmental (SSQE); People Development and Learning; Strategic Projects, and Facilities Development and Travel. Within the Crowley organization corporate services are centralized and support needs of the company, its subsidiaries and business units.
Fox, who is currently serving as vice president of strategic initiatives and marketing for the company's liner and logistics units, is replacing Susan Rodgers, who is transitioning to a part-time role where she will focus on leadership development, training and other special projects.
"Carl is a welcome addition to the Crowley senior leadership team," said Pennella. "His experience in management, marketing, business development and process improvement will help us further grow and continue to excel."
