Allen Lund Company Welcomes Derek Johnson as Manager of Carrier Development
LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, CA - Allen Lund Company is taking its growth into its own hands as it makes another key move to bolster its leadership team. Shortly following the appointment of Jeremy McGovern as Manager of its Los Angeles Sales Office, the fresh produce partner recently revealed Derek Johnson has been appointed to the new position of Manager and Carrier Development.
“I’ve worked with Allen Lund Company for some time now, and I’ve always admired the company culture from afar,” said Johnson. “After interviewing with several members of the team and speaking in-depth with Bob about the opportunity, I knew this role would be a great fit. I’m excited to see what we can accomplish together and to call Allen Lund my career home for many years to come.”
Johnson joins the Allen Lund Company leadership ring with over 12 years of experience in logistics. Prior to taking on this newly created role, he spent seven years as a Transportation Manager for Coca-Cola, where he oversaw the central region of the U.S., according to a press release.
During his tenure, Johnson handled a variety of tasks, including supplier and vendor negotiations, broker relationships, and cost-savings special projects. He also attended the University of North Texas, where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Management.
"We are fortunate to have Derek Johnson join our Allen Lund family,” said Bob Rose, Vice President of National Sales. “After meeting Derek, it’s clear that he is the perfect fit in both his personality and drive to help our growing customer needs. He will not need it, but we wish him the best of luck in this new position.”
