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



1980-1986 Graduation, Tri-Valley High School (Junior High Included)


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.
