New York warehouse executive elected to Industry Executive Committee

Members of the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA), the resource for warehouse logistics, recently elected Peter G. Wilson, chairman and CEO of Buffalo-based Sonwil Distribution Center, Inc., as the association’s Convention Officer. IWLA is the only supply chain industry association focused solely on the needs of third-party warehousing providers.

“Peter is a true leader in the third-party warehousing industry,” says IWLA Chairman of the Board Jared Stadlin, president of Linden Warehouse & Distribution Co. in Linden, N.J. “Under his leadership, Sonwil embraces strategic and technological innovations to remain at the forefront of the market. That same innovative approach will serve IWLA, its members, and the industry well.”

With more than 40-years’ experience in the warehouse and distribution industry, Wilson is a three-term director of the IWLA Board and he has served as chairman of the Food, Transportation Advisory, and Government Affairs Councils. He is also a director of the IWLA Insurance Company, a privately held captive insurance company composed of IWLA member companies where he chairs the underwriting committee.

His service extends beyond IWLA. Wilson is a member of Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC) and he is a regular presenter during its annual convention. Locally, he sits on the board of governors for and is vice president of The Country Club of Buffalo. Wilson is a life member of Safari Club International and past president of the WNY Chapter, past officer of EMW Soccer Club, and he is founder and immediate past president of the Iroquois Chief Hockey Club.

The IWLA Convention & Expo, Nov. 1-3, in San Antonio, Texas, will include Wilson’s formal installation as Convention Officer.
