"The marketplace is not as strong as it was during the past year or two, but we are experiencing some capacity growth," notes David McClimon, senior vice president of Con-way Inc. and president of Con-way Freight Inc., Ann Arbor, Mich., its $2.8-billion transportation and supply chain services subsidiary.

There is a significant difference between leadership and management, according to Dave McClimon, who has led Con-way Freight Inc., Con-way Western Express, and Con-way Central Express during his 35 years in transportation and logistics, covering both private and public sector senior and executive level management and leadership positions.
"Many people are good managers, but not good leaders," he notes. "They get too involved in day-to-day issues, and don't look out far enough. Being a good leader means being able to see around the next corner." McClimon views good leaders as people who can blend four key skills: they are able to plan, organize, motivate, and control. They also need to be very collaborative. "Supply chain touches every corner of a company," says McClimon. "Good leaders must be able to appreciate, understand, and collaborate with those areas. "They also need to recognize the importance of having good talent on their team to help drive innovation and change," he adds. "Good leaders surround themselves with people who are strong in areas where the leader may be weak." Looking out for others in the organization is also important. For example, many new college graduates are smart but have no real-world experience. "Because the logistics sector is set for significant growth, and more jobs than it will be able to fill, we have to figure out how to help new graduates gain exposure," McClimon says. "Good leaders will find a way to mentor them, because giving back and helping position young employees for the future is crucial." Staying attuned to what's happening in the marketplace is also a leadership skill. "Carve out time in your day to read newspapers and trade magazines," McClimon advises.

From 2005 to 2007, he was the President of Con-way Freight Inc. and Senior Vice-President of Con-way Inc. Prior to this, he was the President and Chief Executive Officer of Con-way Central Express from 2002 to 2005 and the President and Chief Executive Officer of Con-way Western Express from 2000 to 2002. We believe that Mr. McClimon’s experience as a senior executive, and his extensive experience in the transportation industry, lend themselves to Mr. McClimon’s service as a continuing director of the Company. Mr. Hébert has succeeded Mr. Deluce as the Chair of the Compensation Committee, and Mr. McClimon has succeeded him as a member of the Nominating and Governance Committee.
