ATL Partners-backed Global Critical Logistics, a provider of mission-critical freight forwarding and global logistics to specialty sectors, has added Daniel Rosenthal as president and chief executive officer.

Rosenthal joins the firm with over two decades of experience founding or leading high-performing businesses across multiple industries. He joins after most recently serving as chief revenue and operating officer of Root Inc., a technology-based provider of auto insurance services.

“I am excited to be leading GCL at such a pivotal time in the Company’s evolution. As the premier global provider of logistics and freight forwarding solutions to specialty industries including the live entertainment and music touring, sports and broadcasting, fine arts, film and TV, and high-end automobile end markets, GCL’s business is poised for continued growth,” says Rosenthal.
