BELLEVILLE, Ont. –Meyers Transportation Services (MTS) Group owners Evan and Larry Meyers have announced they are passing the torch to their daughters Jacquie and Natalie.
After 37 years of running Meyers Transport, Mortrans and Mosaic Logistics, Evan and Larry have decided the time is right for their daughters to take over, the company said in a release.
Jacquie Meyers is the daughter of Evan. She’ll assume the role of president of the MTS Group of Companies. Larry’s daughter Natalie Meyers will be serving as chairperson.
The company says Jacquie will be focused on growth, sustainability and logistics. She has worked in the industry for more than eight years, focusing on pricing, operations and sales. She has also managed Mosaic Logistics for the past two years, the company says.
Chairperson Natalie Meyers will focus on operations, safety, administration and finance. She joined the company in 1995 and most recently served as vice-president of eastern operations. Meyers Transport was founded in 1927 and has been family-run ever since.
“Transferring the control of the company to the fourth generation is a rare milestone for any family business, and one we are very proud of,” the company said in a release. “Evan and Larry will continue to support the new leadership as directors of the company.”
