KONTANE LOGISTICS IN CHARLESTON NAMES NEW COMPANY PRESIDENT, MICHAEL J. STOLARCZYK
“We are extremely excited to have a dynamic leader like Mike as part of our growing team,” said Kontane Inc. CEO Ed Byrd. “His wealth of experience will help us maintain our leadership in providing client-aligned supply chain solutions for our various clients throughout the world.”
Prior to joining Kontane Logistics, Stolarczyk served as CEO of the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority in Toledo, Ohio. Stolarczyk’s past work experiences include serving as Senior Director at Exel Logistics in Westerville, Ohio, and holding various management positions within the A.P. Moller/Maersk Group, including Maersk Hong Kong Limited and Maersk Agency Sro, in Prague, Czech Republic. In 2002, Stolarczyk was named to Fast Company magazine’s debut list of “Fast 50: Global Innovators Whose Achievements Helped Change Their Company or Society.”
“I am honored to join the Kontane organization and to have the chance to work with the Byrd family,” said Stolarczyk. “Collaboratively, we are going to continue to provide logistic solutions and build upon our local, regional reputation as a client-focused supply chain partner. I think the right time to take some aggressive steps is when the economy is in flux, so when the new economy bounces back, Kontane and our customers will be ahead of the curve.”
