Covenant Renames Holding Company

Covenant Transport said Wednesday its stockholders approved a name change to the truckload carrier’s corporation to Covenant Transportation Group Inc.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Parker said the change “is symbolic of our corporate leadership’s focus on managing all of our operating units as independent businesses.”

Covenant also said that it promoted Joey Hogan to be chief operating officer of Covenant Transportation Group, and the president of Covenant Transport, the renamed holding company’s largest operating unit.

Covenant Transport is ranked No. 37 on the Transport Topics 100 listing of U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
