Peach State Integrated Technologies, producer of the National Logistics & Distribution Conference (NLDC), announces the appointment of Ralph Henderson as NLDC executive director. Henderson is replacing Ron Dahlin, who has served in the position since 2010 and is leaving to start a ministry.

“NLDC has become one of the premier executive educational forums in the supply chain industry. I am excited and honored to be leading it into the future,” states Henderson. “Our industry continues to be in a very challenging and demanding time of change. Peach State is an organization that I have always admired for meeting the challenges of their supply chain and logistics customers with professional integrity and service excellence. I will work hard to maintain that integrity and service reputation, while we expand the awareness of Peach State as a solutions provider with exceptional capabilities.”

In addition to the appointment as NLDC executive director, Henderson has been named senior director of Market and Business Development at Peach State. He will be responsible for the strategic development and implementation of marketing initiatives, and management of the marketing and business development departments.

“Ralph’s conference and event planning experience will allow us to seamlessly move forward with preparing for the 10th annual NLDC with the quality standards we’ve established, while his extensive supply chain sales, marketing and business development experience will advance our ongoing initiatives to serve and grow our quality client base,” said Jim Bowes, Peach State’s CEO.

After 16 years with Peach State, Dahlin will be stepping down from his roles as vice president of Corporate Development and NLDC executive director to pioneer a new ministry, Journey 2445, with his wife, Jo Anne.

The 2014 National Logistics & Distribution Conference is scheduled for April 14-16 at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference was founded and is produced by Peach State Integrated Technologies known for providing comprehensive global consulting, engineering, and material handling systems integration solutions to a broad spectrum of supply chain leaders.
