Officials with global supply chain company Geodis announced Tuesday that Mike Honious will be promoted to president and CEO of its Brentwood-based Geodis in Americas. 

The promotion is effective Oct. 3, when Honious will start reporting to Marie-Christine Lombard, CEO of France-based Geodis (stylized as “GEODIS”). Honious replaces the retiring Randy Tucker, who has been with Geodis and its predecessor Ozburn-Hessey Logistics since 2011.

As president and CEO of the transportation and logistics company, Honious will be responsible for freight forwarding, transportation management, business development, strategic management office, legal, accounting and finance, human resources, engineering and technology and information technology. Geodis employs nearly 12,000 people and runs 135 warehouses across the United States.

A 15-year veteran of Geodis in Americas, Honious previously served as COO in the Brentwood office. Prior to joining the company, he held several senior level operations positions at Gap Inc.

Honious earned his B.S. degree in industrial engineering technology from University of Dayton.

“Mike has the ideal blend of deep industry experience and strong leadership abilities needed to succeed as CEO for GEODIS in Americas,” Lombard said in the release. “Under Mike’s leadership, I am confident GEODIS in Americas will continue to thrive as one of our key regions and see great success into 2021 and beyond.”

Geodis bought then OHL for a reported $800 million in 2015.
