Lynden International announced the promotion of Kyle Fisher to District Manager at the Dallas Service Center. Fisher will develop domestic and international business and manage sales and operations for the freight forwarding company.
A seven-year veteran of Lynden, Fisher was previously Service Center Manager at Lynden International's sister company, Lynden Transport, in Kenai, Alaska. In 2011, he was named to the "Top 40 under 40" list (page 18 of the PDF) of noteworthy young professionals in Alaska. Fisher was elected to the Soldotna City Council, served as the President of the Kenai Chamber of Commerce, the Vice President of the Kenai Watershed Forum and was Vice President of the Kenai Chapter of the Alaska Support Industry Alliance.
"We're excited to have Kyle on board in Dallas. This is a market with tremendous potential for oil and energy, and Kyle's background in Alaska fits well with our strategic direction there," says Dennis Mitchell, Lynden International Vice President Oil and Gas. "Kyle's experience at Lynden Transport will have a positive impact on our success in Dallas."
"I look forward to the opportunities the market holds for Lynden International in Dallas as well as getting to know the experienced staff," Fisher says.
