ArrowStream, Inc., a supply chain innovator that combines expertise in data science and analytics to improve the way supply chains perform, has announced the appointment of Mitch Rader as its new Chief Executive Officer. Rader will replace Frank Morgiewicz, who will be joining ArrowStream’s Board of Directors.
Rader will join ArrowStream after spending the last year as Senior Vice President at Lineage Logistics, the second largest cold storage provider in the world. Prior to joining Lineage, Rader served for eight years as CEO and Chairman of the Board of Consolidated Distribution Corporation (CDC), where he led the sale of the company to Lineage in 2016 after growing CDC to become the largest customized redistribution supply chain solution in the country.
The selection of Rader signals a continued focus for ArrowStream to drive further innovation with its technology, while also strengthening its position in the logistics space. The news of Rader’s appointment comes four months after it was announced that Diversis Capital LLC, a Los Angeles-based private equity firm, had acquired ArrowStream.
Rader’s extensive background in both technology and foodservice logistics make him an ideal fit to succeed Morgiewicz. Morgiewicz will move into an advisory role with the company, serving on the Board of Directors.
