Fred Haladay

President & COO, Atlas® Van Lines Canada

After serving the Atlas® Van Lines Canada team for over 30 years, Haladay was promoted to President and Chief Operating Officer of Atlas Canada in October 2020. He joined the industry following time as a signalman in the Royal Canadian Navy and has since held an array of positions in the company. For years, Haladay has enjoyed the opportunity to form relationships with customers and employees across the country. His goal as a leader is to maintain this engagement and act as a steward for stockholders as he secures Atlas Canada’s future. Though the COVID-19 pandemic precipitated very difficult business decisions, it also fostered a rise in migration rates. Haladay is optimistic this growth will continue into 2021. Unified by their strategic objectives and positive messaging, Haladay and his team will transition Atlas Canada’s operating system to AtlasNet®. He’s eager to install this strong operational base to better support Canadian Agents and customers in 2021.

Vice President & CIO, Atlas® Van Lines

Smith joins the Atlas® team with experience in engineering and finance. He launched his career doing technology automation and process engineering with RR Donnelley & Sons. After relocating for various jobs, Smith seized the opportunity to move back to Evansville, IN, where he worked with Card Management Corporation, LLC as the Chief Information Officer. His next career transition landed Smith at OneMain Financial, then known as American General Finance, Inc., where he concentrated on application development, project management, quality assurance, and business intelligence, leading a 400-person team before accepting the CIO role with Atlas. Assuming this position in March 2020, he is tasked with both strategic and tactical work. In crafting a strategic road map, he will give Atlas’ vision direction. He aims to foster a collaborative technological relationship and to focus on Atlas’ priorities—the applications only Atlas can deliver. Smith’s work with Stacy Draper has been goal-oriented and supportive, and he plans to ensure information technology is in lockstep with the organization in 2021.

Chief Security Officer, Atlas® Van Lines

With a background in the security sector and project management, Draper has gained experience in the industry that equips her to oversee security and data at the Atlas® World Group level. She began her career with a financial institution, where she implemented the company’s first cybersecurity program. Following Draper’s influential 17 years there and her security work with other organizations, she was interested in a more global role. As Chief Security Officer, she’s excited to build a mature security and privacy program under the National Institute of Standards and Technology framework in collaboration with Chief Information Officer David Smith. Draper is focused on providing global guidance and resilience to the Atlas® network by incorporating business continuity plans, business impact analysis, disaster recovery planning, and business resumption planning under one umbrella. The ever-changing threat landscape requires constant adaptation, and Draper’s three-year strategic privacy and security road map will enrich Atlas’ security management program moving forward.
