Press Release | Charlotte, NC | July 21, 2023
RXO (NYSE: RXO), a leading provider of asset-light transportation solutions, announced Jamie Harris, chief financial officer, was named Chief Financial Officer of the Year finalist by the Charlotte Business Journal. The honorees were formally recognized at an awards event on July 20 and featured in a CBJ special report on July 21.
“We are thrilled that Jamie is being recognized for his expertise, unbelievable work ethic and desire to drive a culture of continuous improvement,” said Drew Wilkerson, chief executive officer at RXO. “His vast experience and steady leadership have shaped RXO, especially as we worked to become standalone, publicly traded company last Fall. He is a strategic business partner within the organization as he unified the finance function, established new processes to optimize budget and financing and ultimately setup the capital structure for RXO.”
Harris joined RXO in September 2022 and contributed to the successful spin-off from XPO Logistics in November 2022. Harris led the finance team to achieve best-in-class results while setting up the new standalone company, despite a tough freight market. He has more than 35 years of experience, including two decades in high-level roles for other public companies in Charlotte. Harris earned his bachelor’s degree from Appalachian State University and Master of Business Administration from Wake Forest University. He has been named to the CBJ CFO of the Year list twice before, earning the lifetime achievement award in 2017 for his work at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated.
The CBJ CFO of the Year award program highlights many of the region’s brightest financial executives and recognizes local professionals with outstanding performance in their roles as corporate financial stewards.
