Home News Xpress Global Systems names Bill Speer CFO

Chattanooga, Tenn.—Xpress Global Systems (XGS) has promoted Bill Speer from vice president of finance to CFO. The move comes on the heels of a very successful year at XGS in which Speer helped guide the organization through three acquisitions and multiple new market expansions.

“Bill has been instrumental in supporting us through significant change since his career began at XGS,” said Dan Martin, CEO of XGS. “This move is well-deserved, and I look forward to continuing to build on the foundation we’ve been able to create over the past year.”

A product of Purdue University’s Finance Management program, Speer has held numerous roles in manufacturing and transportation. Immediately before joining XGS, he spent two years at Zep Inc. as the senior director of finance for the firm’s Food & Beverage division, where he helped drive double-digit growth in back-to-back years. Prior to Zep, Speer held executive finance roles with Unified Brands and Frito-Lay.

“What we’ve been able to achieve at XGS in such a short amount of time has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career,” Speer said. “Being on a team with a shared vision and passion to get better every day for our customers makes it fun to think about what we can become and the steps we need to take to get there. This is an exciting moment in XGS history, and I am happy to be surrounded by some of the brightest stars in our industry.”

In his new role, Mr. Speer will continue to lead and grow his finance team with expanding responsibilities given the increased scale, including all financial controls and taxation as well as contributing to strategic direction.
