Vice President of Liberty Cold
Over my 15 plus years of experience in Supply Chain, I have worked exclusively in the Food Manufacturing space leading the Production Scheduling, Inventory Management, Logistics, and Purchasing functions. My goal is to create an atmosphere where our team can laugh and argue at the same time. I strive to assemble a team that has passion for the services we provide. The team is driven to serve our clients and bring transparency through the Liberty Cold Portal. We must strive to leverage technology in our systems and our buildings to bring value to clients and help identify opportunities in their Supply Chains. This is my passion and I am confident we can be an asset to like-minded companies. To that end, Liberty Cold operates under the mindset that variability is a part of the cold chain. Instead of creating rigid policies and procedures, we must create processes that allow for flexibility to our clients and proactively address the variability in their demand.
Liberty Cold operates under the core values: Service. Value. Friendships. Simply put, Liberty Cold will deliver on being a 3PL that understands the pressure to be competitive in the marketplace while offering the flexibility to adjust to the variability we are faced with every day in our operations. Most importantly, we hope to gain lasting friendships and “enjoy the ride!”
