Leading global logistics provider DB Schenker has appointed Shauna Jamison as Chief People Officer for the Americas. In her new role, effective immediately, she is responsible for developing and executing the strategic direction of Human Resources across the Region.
Ms. Jamison joined the organization with the acquisition of USA Truck, completed last month. She has been leading USA Truck's talent as their Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer since February 2022. Before that, she had 20+ years of experience at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., where she rose from store experience to talent development before becoming their Senior Director, Human Resources. In the latter three-plus years, Ms. Jamison's background was as a human resources executive with the company's supply chain and transportation divisions.
"This is such an exciting time for the DB Schenker teams. With our recent expansion of USA Truck, employees will be able to paint their career paths with broader strokes and work to reach their highest potential," said Ms. Jamison. "I plan to support all our teams over the America’s region to prioritize our people and build an inclusive culture that can shape a sustainable future to make the world a better place."
Katharina Rath, Member of the Board of Management, People & Organization, DB Schenker, said, "I’m very much looking forward to having the America’s Region looked after by our new regional Chief People Officer. Shauna possesses a growth-oriented leadership style, a passion for delivering best-in-class service, and a drive to support our employees – all of which align with our company's deep-rooted culture of Elevating Lives."
Mike Fahy, Chief Executive Officer for Region Americas, DB Schenker, said, "I am delighted that we have the opportunity to recognize Shauna and her achievements at USA Truck and promote her into this DB Schenker Americas role. She comes as a strategic thought leader, adaptable talent developer, team builder, and business manager. Her passion is connecting people with purpose. And we plan to connect more of the amazing USA Truck team into leadership positions at DB Schenker just like we are with Shauna."
