NOWCC Board Member inducted into Defense Logistic Agency Hall of Fame
Mr. Alton Ressler, a member of the NOWCC Board of Directors, was one of seven inductees into the Defense Logistic Agency (DLA) Hall of Fame on May 26. Mr. Ressler was recognized for his service as Director of Corporate Administration during a challenging period for the Agency, the Department of Defense’s largest logistic combat support agency.
From its headquarters at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia, outside Washington, DC, the agency provides worldwide logistics support in both peacetime and wartime to the military services as well as several civilian agencies and 126 countries. (Small but fascinating fact: the staff of approximately 26,000 is responsible for handling over 114,000 requisition requests per day to fulfill its global responsibilities.) One activity for which Mr. Ressler was recognized was his leadership in establishing the framework for transferring more than 10,000 employees into the DLA when it was given the responsibility in 1989 to handle all supply and depot management functions for the Department of Defense.
NOWCC is honored to have a leader with his vision, experience and commitment on the NOWCC Board of Directors.
