Mallory Alexander

I have been at Mallory Alexander International Logistics since 2008 where, with the help of a few colleagues, grew our general commodities domestic trucking and inland distribution division, Mallory Transport.  Founded in 1925, Mallory Alexander International Logistics is a fourth-generation company with more than 500 employees and operations throughout the United States, Hong Kong, and China.  Currently in Business Development for Mallory Transport, I believe that my connections throughout the mid-south would open doors for new members with great ideas and support.

Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, various sporting events around Memphis as well as supporting my Alma Mater…. THE University of Memphis.  

It would be an honor to be able to work with fellow international trade professionals in the Memphis area in promoting avenues for growth in global trade as well as within the Memphis community.
