Grammer Logistics has a new leader.

The Indiana-based nationwide hauler of bulk hazardous materials this month appointed transportation and logistics veteran Scott Dobak as its new chief executive officer, and a member of its board of directors.

Dobak brings more than 30 years of experience to Grammer, a portfolio company of Stellex Capital Management and Mill Rock Capital. Most recently, he served as CEO of Hufcor, an industrial manufacturing company, and he previously was president and CEO of Dicom Transportation, a small parcel, LTL, and third-party logistics provider serving North America.

Dobak also spent time as president of Roadrunner Transportation, a blended, asset-based multimodal logistics company, which he led through multiple successful expansions and acquisitions, Grammer said. He began his career at Yellow Corporation (formerly known as YRC Worldwide), departing as vice president of corporate sales.

“Throughout his career in the logistics industry, Scott has always prioritized building customer-centric organizations focused on delivering best-in-class solutions,” said Michael Wysocki, chairman of Grammer. “He recognizes Grammer’s unique value proposition, culture of safety, and operational excellence.”

Grammer is a leading transportation and logistics provider for specialty chemicals, gases, and materials. The company provides a broad suite of integrated, specialized services, including logistics, transportation, transloading, terminaling, and handling of chemicals and materials where safety, service, training, reliability, geographic coverage, and efficiency are of paramount importance. Grammer boasts more than 20 facilities strategically located near major chemical production hubs across the United States, including a new commercial headquarters in The Woodlands, Texas, and a new terminal in La Porte, Texas, both suburbs of Houston.

“Grammer has an excellent reputation in the chemicals industry and I am thrilled to join the company at this exciting time,” Dobak said. “With the support of all the team members, we are well positioned to continue our growth trajectory and build on the legacy that the Whittington family started many decades ago.”
