This week, Lynden Logistics, Inc. announced the executive promotions of three leaders with deep industry experience.

Vice President of Trade Development Stuart Nakayama, a 30-year transportation and logistics veteran, has been promoted to president, taking over for John Kaloper, who retired Nov. 30.

The company’s new senior vice president of freight operations is Dennis Mitchell, who will oversee transportation services with a focus on Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, all key markets for the company. Mitchell owned a customs brokerage firm in Anchorage before joining Lynden in 1994.

Brian MacAskill, a 30-year logistics industry veteran, is the new vice president of logistics, overseeing supply chain management, 3PL services and Canadian healthcare and pharmaceutical logistics, according to Lynden.

“All three of these individuals have contributed greatly to the success of Lynden throughout the years and demonstrated their leadership and commitment,” Lynden Executive Vice President and COO Alex McKallor said in a prepared statement. “Each brings specific strengths and experience to ensure that our customers continue to receive the high level of service and innovation that Lynden is known for.”
