Dunavant Global Logistics Group is pleased to announce that William Harsha has joined the company as its newest Director of Business Development.  William will be based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and will focus his efforts on expanding the company’s presence in critical Gulf Coast markets.

 William was previously a National Account Manager for Access America Transport, a Chattanooga-based third-party logistics provider.  At Access America Transport, William was responsible for building the company’s client base and providing logistics services for multiple types of global commodities.  He received the company’s “Rising Star” award in 2012 in recognition of his outstanding achievements in sales and customer service.

 “Joining Dunavant Global Logistics Group is a tremendous step forward for me,” says William.  “The company has a sterling reputation for delivering service and value across the United States and around the world.  I am excited about the opportunity to help accelerate their growth in the Gulf Coast region.”

 “William brings us an exceptional combination of experience, energy, and skill,” says Richard McDuffie, Dunavant’s Chief Operating Officer.  “Dunavant’s growth is rooted in our promise to deliver only the highest level of service and attention to each of our global logistics accounts.  William understands that, which makes him exactly the kind of ambitious young talent that will help us expand our customer base in several critical markets.”

 William’s new role is the latest strategic move Dunavant has made to increase its business development activity across the country, following the hires of Jim Lange in Phoenix and Bethany Coots in Houston.
