Horizon Transport, an Elkhart County-based RV Transporter, promoted Joe Braun to President in January, 2019.
The Schrock family started the business in the early 80’s from nothing and have grown it to the most recognized and respected name in the RV Transportation industry. 2019 marks 35 years in business for Horizon. It also marks the first time that the owner is not the president. Founder Melvin Schrock was president of the company from 1984 until 2004 when son, Marion, purchased the business and took the president role.
This January, Horizon promoted Vice President, Joe Braun, to President.
Joe has been with Horizon for 14 years, most recently as its Vice President. Marion Schrock remains 100% owner and continues as Chairman of Horizon Transport.
“Joe has been in charge of the day-to-day operations since 2011 so the transition to President will be seem less and subtle. Joe commands incredible business acumen and has proven track record of upholding our standards that my father founded the Company on; Integrity, Dedication and Excellence. Going forward, my focus will be migrated into capital projects, centered on providing local OEM’s with adequate storage through land acquisitions and development and spending a lot more time with my seven kids!” – Marion Schrock, Chairman and Owner of Horizon.
“Horizon Transport is a family-owned and operated company with a miraculous growth history. As its lead employee, I look forward to building on the legacy that’s been established by the Schrock family. My team will continue to thrive by providing exceptional support for our drivers and service for our customers. It’s an honor to take on this role.” – Joseph Braun, President of Horizon
