Stocks in this article: QLTY

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quality Distribution, Inc. (Nasdaq:QLTY) ("Quality") announced today that its Board of Directors has elected Chief Executive Officer Gary R. Enzor as its new chairman of the Board of Directors and named Alan H. Schumacher to the newly created position of lead independent director, effective immediately. Mr. Enzor succeeds Thomas M. White who, as previously announced, resigned from the Board in connection with the recently completed share sale by certain shareholders, including Apollo Global Management, LLC.

"Gary has been CEO of Quality for six years and during that time has proven himself with outstanding leadership and understanding of the logistics industry," said Mr. Schumacher. "I am pleased that Gary has accepted the additional leadership position of chairman of the Board. His strategic leadership and deep industry knowledge will be of great benefit to both the company and to our shareholders in this added role."

Mr. Enzor has been CEO of Quality since 2007 and been a member of the Board of Directors since 2008. Prior to joining the company, Mr. Enzor served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Swift Transportation Company, Inc. and held executive positions with Dell Computer and Honeywell.

The Board named Mr. Schumacher to the newly-created position of lead independent director as a continuation of Quality's focus on sound corporate governance and to maintain strong oversight by the Board's independent directors. As lead independent director, Mr. Schumacher will preside over executive sessions of the independent directors and work closely with the chairman. Four of the five members of the Board are independent.

"Alan has distinguished himself as chair of our Audit Committee over the last nine years and his knowledge, experience and insights will serve us well in his new role as lead independent director. Alan's new role will also further our strong governance practices and ensure an independent leadership voice, while facilitating the Board's productivity and efficiency," said Mr. Enzor.
