Savage Names Roberts to Succeed Aubry

[ June 5, 2024   //   ]

Savage, the supply chain infrastructure and solutions provider, said President and CEO Kirk Aubry will retire from the company on Dec. 31. Chief Operating Officer Jeff Roberts is being promoted to the additional role of president, effectively immediately, and he’ll take on the CEO role Jan. 1, 2025.
Savage Chairman Don Stebbins said: “We believe Jeff’s passion for the business and commitment to Savage’s culture make him the ideal choice to continue that success into the future.”
“The impact Kirk has had on Savage is undeniable. During his time as CEO, we entered new markets, saw tremendous growth and developed a sustainable, long-term strategy,” said Todd Savage, vice chairman.
While leading Savage, Aubry brought new businesses into the company in the agriculture, infrastructure, and environmental sectors, while safety, operational and financial performance surpassed even historically strong levels.
The Salt Lake City-based privately held, family-owned business has had a succession plan in process for several years. Roberts joined the company as CFO in 2016 and was promoted to COO in 2022.
