TAMPA, FL - A new leader has made her way onto the scene, as IFCO Systems Worldwide has recently announced its new President of IFCO North America, Candice Herndon.
“I am thrilled to join IFCO,” said Herndon. “The company’s vision of an efficient, sustainable fresh food supply chain is imperative now, more than ever. I look forward to working with IFCO leadership, the North American team, our customers, and the entire fresh food supply chain to advance that mission.”
Herndon most recently held the position of Vice President, First Mile Solutions (FMS) and Key European Accounts, at CHEP, according to a press release.

“I am pleased to welcome Candice to the IFCO team,” said Pooley. “Her strong leadership skills and proven track record in strategic planning, customer collaboration and innovation, and operational excellence make her the ideal person to lead our North American business. I would also like to thank Dan Martin for his great leadership and service over the last three years at IFCO. Dan has done an excellent job in improving the performance of the IFCO North America business and helping the business secure significant contracts.”
