IFCO North America Names Company Alumnus Jon Heyler, Vice President, Operations
TAMPA, FL - The day before Halloween is as good a day as any to celebrate, and why not celebrate with the news of IFCO’s new Vice President of Operations for its North America division. With more than two decades of experience in supply chain management, Heyler previously served as IFCO Vice President, East Area, from 2009 to 2013.
“I am proud to return to IFCO,” said Heyler. “The company has developed a strong reputation for developing and implementing fresh food packaging solutions that increase food safety, sustainability, and operational efficiency, while reducing costs for growers and retailers. That is something special and something I want to be a part of once again.”
For the past two years, Heyler has served as Chief Operating Officer of Pooling Provider, Hoover Ferguson Group, a former Brambles joint venture. According to a press release, he has served in a number of leadership roles in operations, logistics, transportation, and general management during his career. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Vermont.
“I am pleased Jon has agreed to rejoin the IFCO team,” said Dan Martin, President of IFCO North America. “A strong commitment to food safety and a culture of constant improvement are two of IFCO’s core operating principles, and Jon will provide the leadership, vision and superior execution we need to serve our customers, and their consumers, faster, better, and more completely than ever before.”
Heyler will lead IFCO’s strategic operations effort in the United States and Canada, where he will focus on wash operations improvement, asset management, and transportation. He assumed his role September 4; he is based at IFCO headquarters in Tampa, Florida, and will report directly to Dan Martin.
Congratulations to Jon on this new position!
