Judy R. McReynolds is Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of ArcBest Corporation, responsible for managing the multi-billion dollar freight transportation and logistics services company, including oversight of the operating companies ABF Freight, ABF Logistics, Panther Premium Logistics and FleetNet America. Since 2010, Ms. McReynolds has also held the post of Director of ArcBest Corporation, and is the only member of the company's senior management who serves on the board. April 26, 2016, Ms. McReynolds was elected as Chairman of the Board of ArcBest Corporation. Her 26 years of transportation industry experience, including 19 years at ArcBest, provides significant value to the board.
During her tenure, Ms. McReynolds has evolved the ArcBest strategic focus to expand beyond its core less-than-truckload services in order to better serve customers across the supply chain spectrum. Building upon ABF Freight's 90-year-old roots as an LTL leader, she is diversifying ArcBest into a logistics provider through the addition of asset-light businesses. These include the 2012 purchase of Panther, which provides time-sensitive, mission-critical delivery and premium logistics, and the 2013 formation of ABF Logistics as a complementary sister company to ABF Freight.
Ms. McReynolds serves on numerous outside boards including OGE Energy Corp., First Bank Corp., First National Bank of Fort Smith, and the Transportation Industry Council of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. She also serves on the Dean’s Executive Advisory Board of the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, and is chair of the University of Arkansas Fort Smith Foundation Board. She is also the current chair of the American Transportation Research Institute Board, and a member of the American Trucking Associations Board of Directors and Executive Committee. A Certified Public Accountant, Ms. McReynolds holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Oklahoma.
Judy and her husband, Lance, who is an active Fort Smith community volunteer, have two grown sons.
