MTC Logistics Announces Transition Plan

[ May 24, 2018   //   ]

MTC Logistics (MTC) announced a leadership transition plan on May 18 in which Andrew (Andy) B. Janson has been appointed COO and will succeed F. Brooks Royster, III, as President in early 2019.

Mr. Royster has served as President of MTC for the past five years and will work with Mr. Janson to ensure the smooth transition in leadership. Royster will then move into a role as head of International Operations for MTC.

Said Royster “I have served in a leadership role in the logistics industry for more than 40 years and it is time for me reduce my corporate responsibilities and oversee the transition. Andy is someone I’ve known for many years and he will be a tremendous asset to MTC.”

Mr. Janson most recently served as CEO with Hanson Logistics, a leading temperature-controlled logistics company specializing in warehousing and transportation. Janson brings nearly 30 years of industry service and currently serves as Vice Chairman of the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses.

“Andy’s addition fulfills two of MTC’s strategic objectives: building and maintaining an industry-leading executive team and expanding its transportation subsidiary, MLogistics™,” said Harry Halpert, CEO of Hoffberger Holdings (HHI), MTC’s parent company. “Ernie Ferguson runs our transportation subsidiary, which was originally established in a joint venture with a company Andy managed 15 years ago. I am excited for these two men to be united once again, and I am excited for MTC’s customers.”
