Inc. following the merger of the two companies. Smith,

looking to bring to the organization," said Fred Hunger,
chairman of CPG.

that, combined with CPG, now has more than 1,300
pieces of equipment in its motor carrier fleet. His career
also includes executive posts at Southern Cal Transport
and Schneider National. Smith succeeds the late
Russel Graef, one of CPG's co-founders.
