Supply Chain Alliance Announces New Member of Leadership Team
Legacy Foodservice Alliance has announced that industry veteran Michael Push has recently been promoted to the position of Vice President of Operations. In this new role, Michael will continue his responsibilities for facilities, equipment, and systems maintenance and enhancements. Additionally, he will assume new responsibilities in the day-to-day operations of the company, including human asset and capital asset management.
Michael began at Legacy while still a student at the University of Virginia. Upon graduation, he joined the company on a full-time basis in the summer of 2012, and has served in areas of continually growing responsibility since then. Michael spent several years on the Distributor Development side of the business, before shifting more to operations about 3 years ago.
Over the last two years, Michael has led the effort to update and improve all of the company’s operating and communication systems. He has taken the lead on greatly enhancing the company’s Social Media presence, messaging, and in keeping posts both topical and current. Earlier this year, as video conferencing became the norm, Michael spearheaded the effort to improve the company’s audio/visual capabilities from all individual workstations, and upgraded office conference rooms with state of the art audio and visual equipment. Like the rest of Team Legacy, Michael has always played a role in the Marketplaces, but over the last several Marketplaces, has taken an increasingly expanded role in the planning and execution of these events.
“It has been truly gratifying to see Michael’s evolution within the company,” commented Legacy CEO Steve Push. “He’s grown from an entry level position through various areas of responsibility, to a recognized leader within the company. His passion for the business and his pragmatic tenacity for problem solving have been huge assets to the company, especially in this year of seemingly endless disruption.”
