Members of the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA), the resource for warehouse logistics, recently elected Scott Mayfield, president of Kenco Management Services, LLC, to a three-year term on the IWLA board of directors. Mayfield’s position was formally announced March 10 during the IWLA annual business meeting.
“Scott’s background in human resources and management are important skillsets that will benefit the IWLA Board of Directors. As a board member, we will look to Scott’s strong leadership experience to guide the association in new, more profitable directions,” says IWLA President & CEO Steve DeHaan. Mayfield has served on the executive committee of the IWLA Insurance Company (IWLA-IC) board since 2013, and is the risk chairman for the IWLA-IC.

He also created new department initiatives including reducing healthcare costs, proactively reducing equal employment opportunity lawsuit susceptibility via frontline manager training, increasing Kenco’s 401(k) participation, implementation of an integrated human resources system, training and development of targeted leadership potentials, and partnering with a temporary staff vendor to meet short-term labor needs at the site level.
