Former Con-way and CRST International executive John Labrie has been named CEO at third-party logistics provider Network Global Logistics, replacing Scott Riddle.

Labrie, who most recently was senior vice president of corporate strategy at Echo Global Logistics, is taking over from Riddle, who left that post last year, said Peter Nilsson, a spokesman for NGL based in Broomfield, Colorado.

“We look forward to benefiting from his insights and experience as a leading member of the NGL executive team,” said Ray Garcia, chairman of Network Global Logistics, who added that Labrie was a “visionary.”

Labrie joined Echo in early 2015 after forming a freight brokerage in 2011, soon after he left the top post at CRST Expedited. From 2007 to 2010, Labrie headed Con-way Freight, the largest unit of the company acquired by XPO Logistics last year.

“John adds a new dimension and depth of industry knowledge to our organization, which will increase our ability to better serve our clients and impact their bottom lines,” Garcia said in a statement.

Network Global, which has 100 employees and 30 worldwide locations, provides global warehousing, distribution and other logistics. It was formed in 1971, offering air courier services.

“Network Global Logistics is clearly one of the most innovative companies in the supply chain and logistics world today,” Labrie said in the statement.
