For over a decade, Chris Bolen has been helping make warehouses more productive and efficient at Saddle Creek Logistics Services. He has spent his career growing his knowledge in logistics and expanding his responsibilities at Saddle Creek. He joined the company’s Management Trainee Program right after graduating in Supply Chain Management from the University of Tennessee.
Today, Chris is a Senior Distribution Manager, and he oversees operations in multiple warehouses in Lakeland, Fla. His typical day consists of meeting with clients and associates to understand where he and his team can improve.
"I like being able to provide value to our clients by implementing solutions that help them get their products to the marketplace quickly and accurately”, says Chris.
When Chris chose Saddle Creek to start his career, he was looking for a company where he could develop himself as a professional, as a person, and as a member of the community. Beyond that, he explains, “Saddle Creek executed a growth plan during a time when no one was growing – everyone was shrinking. The company’s vision to continuously expand has helped to shape my professional career and personal mindset. Saddle Creek has helped me build leadership, communication and management skills by continuously allowing me to gain additional responsibilities and set bigger and bigger goals.”
The company’s supportive environment and opportunities provided for expanding his skill set, together with his dedication and hard work, have aided Chris in his career advancement. He believes it is very important for every professional to approach problems with different solutions. “Every process has room for improvement," he explains. “That’s the key to finding different ways to deliver excellent service."
