(Nasdaq:VTNC) (TSX:VTN), a North American transportation firm, today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Bill Deluce, a current member of the Board, as interim President and Chief Executive Officer following the resignation of Rick Gaetz as President and Chief Executive Officer and a Director of the Company, effective immediately.
