It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of David Lyons, founder and chairman of Saddle Creek Logistics Services. David was 85 years old and passed away with his family by his side.
David founded Saddle Creek in 1966 with one 12,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Lakeland, FL. Over the course of the next 49 years, he transformed the small public warehouse company into one of the largest family-owned 3rd party logistics providers in the country. Under his leadership, Saddle Creek has experienced year over year revenue growth every year since its founding. Today, Saddle Creek has grown to be a fully integrated logistics services provider with over 2500 associates nationwide.
We will miss David's leadership, guidance, encouragement and his ever engaging smile. We thank him for his vision, dedication and hard work in building this great company. And we will honor him by continuing to deliver excellence in service, Whatever It Takes!
Thank you Mr. Lyons, we'll take it from here.
