As the new General Manager- Logistics for Dircks, Tim Whalen spearheads the growing logistics division of the company, including warehousing, fulfillment and distribution for accounts, as well as overall operations.
Tim has 13 years of experience in warehousing and distribution, having worked in the past for the national distribution facility of a specialty pharmacy that shipped prescription medication to patients and medical facilities in all 50 states. Tim has also managed a high-volume, multi-client 3PL distribution center in Arizona that catered to e-commerce, direct sales, and retail customers. He also worked in a 600,000 facility where he was responsible for the inventory of over 300,000 SKUs in a three-story picking module, each story the size of a soccer field. Needless to say, he’s the right man for the job and we love having Tim as part of the Dircks team!
On a personal note, Tim is a musician who can sing and play guitar, harmonica, mandolin … though probably not all at the same time. He enjoys camping trips in his travel trailer with his wife and two children, and as he’ll tell you, Tim enjoys “finding creative ways to make a double- bogey on the golf course”.
