XPO Logistics, a provider of freight transportation services, appointed Nina Reinhardt chief communications officer of RXO, the planned spin-off of XPO’s brokered transportation platform, effective immediately. Reinhardt will join XPO as chief communications officer of the North American transportation division and will lead RXO’s communications organization when the separation is complete. She will report to Drew Wilkerson, who will be CEO of RXO and who currently serves as president of transportation in North America for XPO.
Reinhardt joined the company from Honeywell, where her 18-year experience included leadership roles in external and internal communications, public affairs and investor relations. Recently, she was vice president of external communications and public affairs, serving as chief company spokesperson and leading a global team that developed strategies and messaging for all Honeywell business units and regions.
“Nina is a hands-on communications executive who will be a highly visible representative of the RXO brand,” Wilkerson said. “Her team will build on our best-in-class industry reputation and leverage our technology advantage. As a standalone company, we’ll be in a strong position to communicate our priorities to customers and carriers, and accelerate value creation for our shareholders.”
XPO intends to spin off its asset-light brokered transportation platform from its asset-based less-than-truckload business, creating two separate, publicly traded companies. XPO expects to complete the spin-off in Q4/22.
