Mr. Petersen brings more than 25 years of industry experience and 15 years of management experience to Vintners Logistics. Petersen spent the last eight years as Director of Intermodal Services for an independent trucking company in Portland, Oregon, where she was responsible for the company’s largest transportation and logistics division. Prior to that, Mr. Petersen spent six years in an executive position with Market Transport, Ltd. in Portland. She is a graduate of Oregon State University.
Petersen leaves behind longstanding friendships and collegial support in her current position, but the move to the wine industry is a return to her roots. Her passion for wine stems from her upbringing in Dundee, Oregon, where she watched her grandmother’s orchard grow into one of the first vineyards in Newberg, Oregon. Petersen has a decades-long passion for wine, farming and small businesses. When the opportunity arose to work for Vintners Logistics, she seized it with both hands to combine her professional experience with her enthusiasm for wine. My husband Steve and I are looking forward to this new adventure and being part of the Tri-City community, Mr. Petersen said.
Vintners Logistics was founded in 2007 when owner Robert Thompson recognized that the wine industry in the Pacific Northwest was under-served and lacked third-party logistics and warehousing providers with expertise in the industry. Since then, his vision has led to the development of a range of services designed to meet the complex logistical needs of wineries and vineyards. His pioneering spirit has brought tremendous growth to the company. Lisa’s experience and leadership will allow us to continue on the path of rapid growth, says Robert. We are the main partner of numerous wineries and vineyards. Lisa’s experience will allow us to continue to offer a full range of logistics, transportation and warehousing solutions, as well as develop and implement new lines of warehousing and transportation services. With Lisa’s arrival, I will be able to increase my energy in terms of servant leadership, as well as extensive adventure motorcycling.
