In his new role, Morrison will have full leadership responsibility for the company's information technology services, systems, and resources. He will report to CEO Jeff Walsh.
"I considerate it a privilege to join Sasser after consulting for one of its subsidiary businesses, CF Rail Services, for the past year. I saw right away that Sasser is deeply committed to innovation and relentless improvement, both of which matter to me as an IT professional. Just as important is Sasser's emphasis on culture and treating colleagues the way you'd treat a family member. That stood out to me and made my decision to join Sasser's IT team an easy one. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with CF Rail Services to automate its railcar repair tracking, and to working closely with our IT and leadership teams to create and execute systems strategies that position our entire family of businesses for continued strong performance and growth well into the future," Morrison said.
Morrison is an IT and operational leader who brings nearly 20 years of experience to Sasser's leadership team. Before joining Sasser Family Holdings, he was managing partner and systems and process improvement consultant for CliffDrive Partners. In his role Morrison developed and managed client relationships and was a manufacturing and asset management subject-matter expert. Previously Morrison was vice president, Information Technology, for FreightCar America, where he was responsible for application and infrastructure delivery, strategy and governance, and security and risk management. Morrison began his career as a network administrator and software developer in the transportation and logistics industries.
"We are intentional in positioning our leadership team to support our opportunity-based culture and strategic objectives, and will continue looking to add talented individuals like Brock to our leadership team. He is a natural fit with our cultural values and business approach. Brock's passion for bringing his broad experience, unique perspectives, and talents to our business was apparent early on and I know that he will continue to make an invaluable contribution to Sasser," said CEO Jeff Walsh.
