ArcBest Corporation (Nasdaq: ARCB) announced that Board of Directors' member John H. Morris will retire from the board effective October 31, 2016, after more than 28 years of service, and that two new directors have been added.

The retirement of Morris and addition of two new directors bring the total board membership of ArcBest to 11 from 10 previously.

The new directors are Michael P. Hogan, Executive Vice President, Strategic Business & Brand Development for GameStop Corporation, whose term began on October 25, 2016, and Eduardo Conrado, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer of Motorola Solutions, Inc., whose term will begin on November 1, 2016. Both Hogan's and Conrado's terms on the board will expire at ArcBest's annual meeting of stockholders in 2017.

"We are very grateful to John Morris for his incredible service to our company for so many years, providing us with his expertise, financial acumen and strong encouragement of our strategy," said ArcBest Chairman, President and CEO Judy R. McReynolds. "We wish him all the best in his retirement and will always remember his support of our company through good times and through the years that were challenging to our organization."

Stephen Gorman, member of the board since July 2015, will replace Morris as chair of the board's Compensation Committee effective October 31, 2016. Hogan has been appointed to the Audit Committee and Conrado has been appointed to the Nominating/Corporate Governance and Compensation Committees.

McReynolds noted the value of both Hogan's and Conrado's expertise in marketing and brand strategy with technology-driven enterprises.

"Mike Hogan's unique experience leading GameStop's successful diversification strategy and transformation, and Eduardo Conrado's leadership of Motorola's growth-focused customer experience innovations, IT and strategy teams, combined with their thoughtful approach to business, bring tremendous knowledge to the ArcBest Board," said McReynolds. "I am looking forward to working with Mike and Eduardo as we grow ArcBest by providing leading-edge supply chain solutions for our customers."
