Whether he’s working with customers, carriers or employees, Rick Slaven is in his element when he’s cultivating and building relationships. Rick’s outgoing personality pairs well with the customer-centered focus required by his current charge over the fresh produce logistics program. His role at BirdDog offers ample opportunity for his expertise in the areas of customer service, customer relations and carrier management to positively impact a variety of employees and clients across the company.

When Rick and his wife, Melissa, can find time to sneak away to the lake for a retreat, they bring along their four children and three grandchildren to enjoy family time and outdoor activities like hunting, fishing and kayaking.
