Vice President, Operations
Randy Abernathy entered the transportation and logistics industry straight out of college at Lenoir-Rhyne University less than a mile from BirdDog’s corporate offices. Forty years later, he’s mastered nearly every aspect of the business to become an industry leader with the most trusted name in the brokerage business. His attention to detail, knowledge of compliance and ability to maintain an even temperament at the most stressful times make Randy an integral part of the BirdDog leadership team. Like all strong leaders, Randy is a thoughtful listener dedicated to helping his employees achieve their best, while also maintaining a keen awareness of BirdDog’s big picture goals: delivering excellence to shippers and carriers. Randy’s commitment is further reflected in his devotion to his supportive family, including his wife of 20 years and two daughters, both recently married. He’s also a devoted fan of the Carolina Panthers, having missed just one home game since the team’s inaugural 1995 season.
