Supply Chain Management (SCM) Day - Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Bryan Langston

Keynote Speaker - Bryan Langston

The keynote address for the 2017 WIU SCM Day will be presented by Bryan Langston, Vice President-Warehousing for Dot Foods. In 2000, Bryan started with Dot Foods as an account manager, when they acquired Principal Resource in Dallas, Texas, Dot’s first company acquisition. He has served in several roles both in Sales and Operations, and lived in four locations with Dot. For the past 11 years, Bryan has worked in the Mt. Sterling headquarters, and lived in Quincy, IL with his wife, Kelli, and two sons. Bryan has served on the WIU Supply Chain Management Advisory Board since 2015. He also serves as the Campaign Chairman for the United Way of Adams County and as a board member for the Great River Economic Development Foundation.

With Bryan’s path at Dot Foods, from District Sales Manager to now the VP of Warehousing for Dot, Bryan understands firsthand the value of efficient and sophisticated supply chains. As the nation’s first and largest food redistributor, Dot Foods has created a “win-win situation for everyone in the food supply chain.”
