— USA Truck has named a veteran transportation services leader as its new chief executive officer and president.

The Van Buren-based company said in a statement that John Simone is its new leader, succeeding former Chief Executive Officer Cliff Beckham. Beckham is staying with USA Truck, returning to his previous position as executive vice president and chief financial officer.

The company says Simone has 30 years of experience in the transportation field with companies including UPS, Ryder and Greatwide Logistics. He previously was chief executive of LinkAmerica.

In a statement announcing his hiring, Simone said he expects "improved operational execution and enhanced financial management to generate value for stockholders, employees, and other stakeholders."

"USA Truck has a strong foundation to build upon, including a relatively new fleet, dedicated employees, modern technology, and significant balance sheet strength and liquidity," Simone said. "I was attracted to the situation because of these resources and because of the strong commitment to teamwork I sensed from the Board of Directors and the executive team."
