Trailer Bridge Appoints New Chief Financial Officer
24 May 2023

Trailer Bridge, Inc., a full-service, asset-light transportation solution provider, today announced the appointment of Gregory Kleffner as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer. Greg will oversee the company’s finances as well as support the execution of its multifaceted strategy to be a billion-dollar company by 2027.

The role welcomes Greg back to the workforce following his retirement in 2019 from Stein Mart where he served as the company’s CFO for more than 9 years. He brings with him more than 17 years of leadership experience at publicly traded retailers as well as 25 years of experience as a partner at an international accounting and consulting firm.

“When you look at what is required to become a billion-dollar company, you need a leadership team who can think creatively and match that creativity with the experience and know-how to make things happen – Greg is that leader,” said Trailer Bridge Chief Executive Officer Mitch Luciano. “I’m grateful for his willingness to come out of retirement to help us build the future of Trailer Bridge – a future built on a vision that will transform how we show up for our customers.”

Greg’s experience includes a wide range of financial management responsibilities and investor relations, internal auditing, and strategic restructuring as well as disposal of non-core businesses and acquisition integration.

“This is really the only situation which could have drawn me back to work,” said Kleffner. “I have known and respected Mitch and others on the leadership team here at Trailer Bridge for years. What they have created is impressive and I know it will be rewarding to help further build the company.”

Trailer Bridge was founded in 1991 by industry pioneer Malcom McLean to serve the Puerto Rican trade lane and has since expanded to be a full-service, asset-light logistics solution provider. Within the past two years, the company added an International Division, Trailer Bridge International, and a Government Division solely focused on handling the movement of freight around the world as well as signed long-term lease agreements with both the Jacksonville Port Authority and Puerto Rico Ports Authority signaling its continued commitment to providing consistent weekly ocean service to the island. Trailer Bridge is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida with a network of 17 branches spread out throughout North America.
