MELVINDALE, Mich. Aug. 29, 2018 — Evans has hired on David Tisdale, a Transportation expert with over 20 years of experience in the transportation and supply chain management community during this time of substantial growth.
Transportation is evolving rapidly in the supply chain and logistics universe. From driver shortages to new automotive technologies, the transportation world is seeing a number of changes. At Evans, we continue to make advancements through the acquisition of new personnel to help us evolve with these changes.
Tisdale holds a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a minor in Advertising and Public Relations from Grand Valley State University. Tisdale has successfully developed, implemented, and initiated strategies to deliver effective transportation strategies to multiple companies at lowest cost, including PepsiCo and Ryder. As an expert in cutting costs and streamlining operating procedures, Tisdale envisions Evans being set up for success in a non-automotive environment, expanding beyond the more traditional automotive model. His long-term vision at Evans is to diversify the world of transportation.
In starting work for Evans, Tisdale states, “The biggest draw is the simple aspect of coming to work. The comradeship and loyalty here is unlike any other corporate environment. This motivation alone makes it a great group of people to work for.” Tony Trocki, Director of Transportation adds, “I’ve worked with Dave for a long time, and I’m confident his skills will be a great asset to us at Evans.”
