YRC president, COO resigns

Trucking company YRC Worldwide says president and chief operating officer Tim Wicks has resigned to work for his former employer, United Healthcare.

Wicks held the position at Overland Park-based YRC for less than seven months. He was previously chief financial officer of the company. Sheila Taylor succeeded Wicks in that role.

YRC teetered near bankruptcy protection in December. But it says its business picked up momentum in the first quarter.
