Keri and Durrette Wooten welcomed their first child, Ellison Dubose Wooten, last Wednesday. Ellis, as she is called, weighed in at 7.7 pounds at birth.
Both mother and daughter are doing fine and Ellis is enjoying her new home at John's Island, South Carolina.
Ellis is the third baby born to FGN employees since the company was formed in 2009. We are proud of the children born and the lives being built by our employees.
We thank our customers for their business so that the FGN family can continue grow and prosper.
Zach Mathis, FGN's Import Manager, was recognized at the FGN annual employee dinner for his outstanding work during 2014. He received a check for $1000 as thanks for his outstanding work during the year.
Zach has been with FGN since August 2013 and in that period has built significant expertise in handling complex logistics programs, import operations, and during 2014, accounting and cash management. In particular, Zach has taken full responsibility for being the liaison between accounting and operations at FGN. Such work requires a good feel for the cash management and payments operations.
Durrette Wooten, Director of Operations to whom Zach reports, remarked that "Zach's performance during the year exceeded my expectations at every turn. His work is detailed, methodical and dependable. I see nothing that will hold Zach back from future success at FGN and in the logistics business in general."
Zach follows Stephen Kauble who received the same recognition for the year 2013. Each year one FGN employee is recognized for his or her outstanding work.
FGN welcomes the New Year with this, our new web site.
But 2015 brings more than that. It also brings the launch of the Indigo Flexitank Network, a new cooperative of like-minded companies around the world that will be working together in this new year.
The Indigo Flexitank Network has been six months in the making. Last summer the bulk liquid division of Tiba International had the foresight to approach several companies about forming a global network flexitank logistics specialists. After several meetings and much brainstorming, we are now launching Indigo. We are hoping our new cooperative will allow us to provide great new services to our customers.
There will be more coming on this blog about Indigo and our partners. But for now, let us just say, "welcome 2015" and let us all hope the New Year will productive and profitable!
