ArcBest Corporation Chairman, President and CEO Judy R. McReynolds Honored as One of Top 25 2016 Most Influential Women in the Mid-Market

FORT SMITH, Arkansas, August 1, 2016 — ArcBest Corporation® (Nasdaq: ARCB) today announced that Chairman, President and CEO Judy R. McReynolds has been named as one of Top 25 2016 Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market by CEO Connection®, the only membership organization exclusively for mid-market CEOs, for the second consecutive year.

This list recognizes the top 25 women in the U.S. based on their ability to influence change, innovation, and standards for excellence in companies with annual sales between $100 million and $3 billion.

“It’s a great honor for me to be named to this list for the second year,” said McReynolds. “At ArcBest, we work hard to bring solutions to complex logistics challenges and to connect with all of our stakeholders to make sure they understand The Skill and The Will® we bring to every interaction. Our dedicated people are known for going above and beyond as they live out our corporate vision ‘We’ll Find a Way’ every day. In the last several years, we have significantly expanded the scope of the logistics and supply chain solutions we provide, which has been well-received by those looking to the ArcBest companies for expertise and excellent customer service.”

Honorees will be recognized at the 2016 Mid-Market Convention on September 18-21 at The Wharton School in Philadelphia. Referred to as the "Davos for the Mid-Market," this exclusive global gathering features hundreds of CEOs, political leaders, business experts and presidential candidates. 

“We are honored to be able to recognize such a prestigious group of women who have truly made an impact on their company and have given back to their community,” says Kenneth Beck, CEO of CEO Connection. “We have been recognizing CEOs through our Mid-Market 500 and Mid-Market 1000 lists and saw a need to recognize an underrepresented group within the mid-market, so we started the Most Influential Women's list.”
