Jock served as chairman of the Terminal Corporation, where he worked for more than 40 years before co-founding ALAN in 2005. After witnessing the breakdown of relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Jock organized an effort and engaged supply-chain professionals and trade associations to come together to found ALAN. They knew that they could help victims of disaster if they worked together and Jock was a natural fit to lead ALAN.
ALAN’s board of directors has appointed Kathy Fulton, ALAN’s current director of operations, to serve as the interim president.
