Dave Geyer retires, Jim Filter succeeds

Multimodal provider of intermodal transportation and logistics services Schneider has announced a transition within the company’s leadership team as executive vice president and group president of transportation and logistics, Dave Geyer plans to retire next month.

Geyer had a very distinguished 35-year career with Schneider and served as Executive Vice President of Schneider for the past four years. He played an important role in executing Schneider’s growth strategy during his tenure.

“Dave is an extraordinary leader, and his leadership has been instrumental in shaping our organization to what it is today,” said Mark Rourke, President and CEO of Schneider. “I am extremely grateful for his dedication and wish him the best for his retirement.”

“I had the privilege of serving Schneider for more than three decades,” said Geyer. “I am proud of the direction the company is taking and look forward to dedicating time to the next stage of the adventures ahead of me.”

Chief commercial officer and senior vice president of intermodal Jim Filter has been chosen to succeed Geyer as executive vice president and group president of transportation and logistics. In his new role, Filter will oversee the operations, commercial sales, marketing and logistics segments of the company.

Filter has led Schneider’s intermodal segment since 2015. Under his leadership, the company’s intermodal operations have seen substantial gains in revenue and bottom line. In early 2021, Filter’s responsibilities were expanded to include Commercial Director roles. He also led Schneider de Mexico, where he achieved strong results for cross-border truckload and intermodal operations.

“I am honored to be named Executive Vice President and Group President of Transportation and Logistics,” Filter said. “Dave was an outstanding mentor and set Schneider on the path to success.” Filter will assume the responsibilities of executive vice president and group president of transportation and logistics on April 15.
