    That would be a good place for him right along with Kosevec and Gatz, the last 2 did most of the damage and keylon was to arrogant to listen to anyone who could have helped.

    That is hilarious, going from a CEO to a high school assistant coach, maybe he should have skipped the CEO position, and gone straight to motivational speaking.

    He purposely ran vitran into ground so he could get out of his contract and take that football coach job. Lmao.

    Where is he???????????? Right where he belongs........Probably making 30-40K a year and learning a little humility.......However with the money he got from that golden parachute rest assured he's not hurting.

    Assistant football coach.....Hmmmmm !!! You would at least think he could be a real coach. From where he came from (FedEx) to where he is right now makes you wonder......Who is this guy? A pretentious arrogant SOB that got in over his head and destroyed a company......He can't take all the blame but he has his share. As I think back about his famous slogan...."Chasing Greatness" I can't help but wonder......Is he still chasing it?

    That Golden Parachute won't last forever.....Someday he will hit the ground and will pay the price for all the lies and deceit that flowed out of his mouth.

    Too bad he's making $10,000/month for 24 months. Part of his contract when CT purchased Vitran.
    Think it's BS? It's not. Absolute fact.

    I find it rather hard to believe that the family didn't find a way to weasel out of that......Matty could find a loop hole in just about anything.

    True Train. I honestly know they tried to get out of it and were trying to "settle" on a number as a lump sum but were not successful.
    Apparently Chris was very hard to deal with after the buy out and CT just wanted him gone. Matthew was not impressed.
    I actually wrote that wrong, it's $10,000/week. Which was his salary I'm guessing I don't know that or why it was that number but, I'm sure his salary was around 1/2 Mil plus bonus'.
    But I know for a fact he isn't worried about money for a while....

    In Truth he did give up a lot when he left FedEx........He's a very smart man so it does make sense. No one could have saved Vitran.......They were just too far gone......Rick truly made him a scapegoat......Rick destroyed Vitran almost single handed.....It took him awhile but his incompetence finally caught up with him.....His arrogance was his downfall.....Mostly his lack of reinvestment in technology sunk him...........It's easy to see as you look back in hindsight.

    That all did. Him along with all his VP's. The VP's are some I feel for also as they left great jobs with Fedex to come to a sinking ship.
    There is no way Keylon was truthful with them either...Why give up 15+ years as a SR VP and come to a Titanic?
    Keylon is a very smart guy...No doubt. However I knew once he started the hub and spoke he was over his head and the ship would sink.
    You simply could not expect Vitran to run like fedex, they weren't geographically positioned like fedex was.
    They didn't have the right resources. I would have managed cost better, held regions more accountable and found
    a way to make a profit first. Vitran went from losing $4million a quarter to $20 with a snap of the finger.
    We were close....Then the spending spree started which lead to the fall....
