Roadrunner Transportation Systems’ New Board Nominee Chris Jamroz

With more than two decades of finance and logistics leadership experience, Chris Jamroz serves as the CEO of New Jersey-based STG Holdings, which boasts more than 4 million square feet of warehouse space in the United States and offers logistics services such as distribution, multi-vendor and time sensitive inventory management, and high SKU count. Supplementing his executive role with STG, Chris Jamroz was recently nominated to join the Board of Roadrunner Transportation Systems (RRTS).

RRTS CEO Curt Stoelting announced the nominations of Mr. Jamroz and Don Brown in connection with his comments concerning RRTS’ Q1 2019 revenue report. During that period, the company reported revenue of $507.1 million, which represents a shortfall relative to the $569 million consensus estimate. According to Mr. Stoelting, Mr. Jamroz and Mr. Brown will support company efforts to optimize growth through its long-term focus and various business plans.

The two new prospective board members were nominated following news that three of RRTS’ current directors, Michael Ward, John Kennedy III, and William Urkiel, resigned as part of a company-led board transition. Beyond his leadership of STG, Mr. Jamroz functions as the chairman of the secure logistics company CMS Info Systems and served for seven years as the head of the Canada Corporate Finance practice at J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. Mr. Brown, meanwhile, is a former executive with FedEx who spent two decades with the shipping and logistics company.

How to Properly Delegate Tasks to Your Team

For the past several years, Chris Jamroz has led STG Holdings, LLC, as CEO. Based in New Jersey, this company maintains independent container freight station facilities for container freight transported by sea and air. Prior to this, Chris Jamroz held multiple other leadership positions and successfully oversaw the work of several thousand employees.

Good delegation is an important skill for managers and other leaders. Several considerations related to proper delegation include:

Providing training. Ideally, you want to delegate tasks to people who can already perform them. But you cannot assume someone has the knowledge to complete a task you give them. Instead, make sure training and resources are available to people when you assign them a new task. This not only expands their skill range, but it also betters the chance that tasks will be finished in a timely and accurate manner.

Letting go. One of the reasons leaders decide not to delegate is because they struggle with removing themselves from the work. However, letting go of certain tasks can help you get more done. Start by delegating small tasks and work your way up from there. Over time, you will learn that you can trust your team and you will discover the skills your co-workers have. At the same time, make sure you don’t over-delegate and assign tasks to others that you should be doing yourself.

Using feedback. Both you and your workers should provide feedback about the delegation process. For you, make sure you thank your workers when they do a good job on a task. If they fall short, give them constructive criticism. At the same time, encourage your workers to share their thoughts about your delegating abilities and whether they felt everyone got the right tasks and had the resources they needed.
