LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, CA - The Allen Lund Company has recently announced two high-profile promotions from within the company. John Ryan has been promoted to Manager of the Boston office, and Joe Brindle has been promoted to Manager of the Los Angeles office.
"It was really important because those are big offices for us, so their leadership will be counted on for sure," Eddie Lund, President, said about the promotions.
Serving with Allen Lund since April 2013, Ryan previously held the position of Transportation Broker. He earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Salem State University.
"I want to thank the Executive Team for the opportunity they have afforded me. Additionally, I want to thank Lenny for the last 16 years of guidance,” Ryan said in a press release. “Finally, I would like to thank our team in Boston without whom none of this would be possible."
Lenny Sciarappa, VP Sales and Operations, also had high praises for Ryan, adding: "John has been an incredible asset to the Boston office and to ALC for the past 16 years. From day one, he has been fully committed to learning and growing the business. He is a perfect example of what dedication and hard work will do for you. He is well respected by the team and has played an integral role in the success of the Boston office. It has been a pleasure working alongside John on a daily basis, and I am excited to continue to work with him as he assumes his new role."
Brindle has been with Allen Lund for 13 years, serving as Assistant Manager of the Los Angeles Refrigerated Division before his recent promotion.
"Equal parts excitement and gratitude meet me in taking on the role of manager of the LA office,” Brindle said. “I'm excited to be able to continue to work with the LA team as their manager while also being very grateful to the company for this opportunity. With the help of my team, I look forward to helping to continue to build on the success that this office has seen over the years. I work with the best group of people and I'd be nothing without them. Thank you!"
"Very early on in his ALC career, Joe stood out as a leader,” Tracey Lewin, VP Sales and Operations, commented on Brindle's promotion. “For thirteen years now, he has been hungry for knowledge and experience and has proven that he is capable and willing to reach for the stars. His tireless work ethic, get-it-done attitude, and commitment to always do the right thing will take him and the LA office very far. I'm grateful for all of the support Joe has provided over the past eight years in his Assistant Manager role and I'm thrilled for him to take the wheel and lead this office to the next level. Congratulations Joe!"
"Joe has tons of produce experience and the LA office is one of our biggest offices and we’re excited about his promotion," added Lund.
