Trac Intermodal will have new leadership Sept. 1, as it was announced Aug. 17 that President and CEO Jennifer Polli is leaving the company beginning next month after serving as its leader since 2018. She has served the Princeton, N.J.-based company in a variety of roles since 2012.

Polli will be succeeded by Daniel Walsh, formerly president of the last-mile business at XPO Logistics.

Trac Intermodal is one of North America’s major marine chassis pool manager and equipment providers, with 11 pools under management across the U.S. Trac also operates a large fleet of marine and specialty chassis in North America as well as an extensive network of facilities.


Polli was promoted to president and CEO in 2018, and the company said she has led the company through a period of significant transformation, including its sale to Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners in 2020. She also is credited with leading the company through the “unprecedented challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Jennifer was instrumental in facilitating the sale of Trac and its subsidiaries to Stonepeak, and her leadership was essential in setting Trac on the right course in the current challenging economic and operating environment,” Stonepeak Senior Managing Director Luke Taylor said in a statement.


During his time at XPO Logistics, Walsh was a member of the senior management team. Prior to XPO, he was president of IFCO Systems North America, a division of Brambles Ltd., an international supply chain logistics provider operating in 60 countries.

“We are excited to welcome Dan as Trac’s president and CEO. Dan’s extensive supply chain background and corporate management skills will further strengthen Trac’s position as an industry-leading critical intermodal infrastructure provider,” said James Wyper, also a Stonepeak senior managing director.
