OBJECTIVE: To rise to the challenges of Distribution Logistics and Management in
a constantly changing industry and to continually improve myself and my
understanding of the business.
I have been in the distribution industry for a good number of years. I
started by picking orders on a “cherry picker.” I wanted to learn it all. This
attitude led to loading trucks, delivering loads, customer service,
receiving, and eventually management. My love of the industry given to
me by two stepfathers produced a love of the business. As a teenager, I
worked on diesel engines like Cummins and Detroit Diesel with my
stepfather, Allen. As a driver, Irv, the second stepfather, would share a
deeper, driver insight with me. Things such as driving techniques and rules
of the road would be heard frequently at our dinner table. I truly love the

2008-Pres Retail Fleet Manager, JB Hunt Transport
Currently, I am in charge of a fleet of approximately 70 drivers. I
am responsible to the account manager and general
transportation manager. My responsibilities include compliance
related issues, liaison between Staples customer service, their
store, and our driver. Staples took back the creation of the
shipping schedule as a cost-saving measure. Due to an opening
in nighttime-shift management, I was moved to this position.
Technically, I am still considered a Logistics Coordinator.
2006-2008 Logistics Coordinator, JB Hunt Transport
I began this job by building the shipping schedule for Staples in
Dayville, CT. I was responsible for routing a store-to-store
schedule for the entire northeast region including Connecticut,
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont,
and New York City, all boroughs. This included keeping watch
and controlling aspects of 2 Staples warehouses.
2001-2006 Self-Employed, eBay Retail Sales
Sold items on eBay allowing me to spend much needed time
with family and friends. It was a great break and a great job
but, not as challenging as the trucking industry. When JB Hunt
offered me a position to create a shipping schedule that
resembled “rocket science,” I thought it would be a great
challenge. It was.
1993-2001 Customer Service Rep., General Medical Corporation
The company was bought out and broken up. During my years
at Gen Med, I learned everything I know about distribution from
picking orders to receiving product into inventory. I loved the
job and if they not been bought out and later “downsized,” I
would probably still be there.
1990-1993 Director of Technology, Susquehanna Township School District
In charge of ordering equipment and computer software for all
of the schools in the school district. I also rotated my schedule
for school visits and held classes to teach teachers and students
how to use the computers. This job was a 3-year contract.
1987-1995 Gun Fire Control Technician, United States Navy
In my first job, I was responsible for maintaining a 5” gun mount,
the radar and the gun fire control systems used in its proper
operation. In the Navy, I’ve seen Spain, Italy, Boston (yes,
Boston), Algiers, Algeria, Yugoslavia, France, Cuba, Lebanon, St.
Thomas – Virgin Islands and Jamaica.
