"We see a significant opportunity to grow our business and diversify the kinds of industries we serve in Mexico beyond the automotive sector," Althen added. "We're pleased to have an experienced operations leader like Mike in this new role."

In his new role, Casidy is responsible for leading and growing logistics business in Mexico. He will be based in Saltillo, Mexico, which will now function as the Mexico headquarters for Penske Logistics. Casidy holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Kansas. He is a certified Six Sigma Green Belt and holds a Lean Certification from Georgia Tech.
