Jim Stamm promoted to Chairman of Atlas World Group

Jim Stamm completed his transition into the top spot at Evansville, IN-based Atlas World Group Inc., on Jan. 1.

In 2006, Stamm assumed the role of vice chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group and Atlas Van Lines. Following the retirement of long-time leader Mike Shaffer on Dec. 31, 2007, Stamm was promoted to the role of chairman of the board of Atlas World Group. He remains CEO of Atlas World Group and Atlas Van Lines.

As chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group, a nearly $1 billion company, Stamm is ultimately responsible for Atlas World Group and Atlas' subsidiary companies, including Atlas Van Lines, Inc., its largest subsidiary, together with leading the board of directors.

Stamm's climb to the top has been 20 years in the making. The Fort Wayne, Ind. native has held leadership positions within the company since joining as president of Atlas Van Lines' Specialized Transportation Group in 1987. He was named president and chief operating officer of Atlas Van Lines in 1999 and of Atlas World Group in 2004.
