As founder of Diakon Logistics (previously known as Hays Home Delivery Services) in 1991, Bill modeled the Company around a concept to provide a more customer-centric approach, one that would enhance services and quality of support. The enhanced service concept using a dedicated fleet and on-site management was timely and struck a natural accord with retailers. The Company steadily grew to national prominence and its position as a leading third-party logistics company. In late 2003, Bill led the management buyout of Hays Home Delivery Services and the name was changed to Diakon Logistics. Prior to starting the Company, Bill was Vice President of Operations for Merchants Home Delivery. Bill has spent most of his career in the retail services industry and there are few corporate leaders with as much experience and even fewer with more compassion for doing what is right for retailers. Bill graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelors of Business Administration.
