ALAN Founder Jock Menzies Dies

Aug. 21, 2013
He was the creative force behind the American Logistics Aid Network, which was established in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Jock Menzies, president of American Logistics Aid Network, died unexpectedly. He served as chairman of the Terminal Corporation, where he worked for more than 40 years before co-founding ALAN in 2005. After witnessing the breakdown of relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Menzies organized an effort and engaged supply-chain professionals and trade associations to come together to found ALAN.

“They knew that they could help victims of disaster if they worked together and Jock was a natural fit to lead ALAN,” an announcement from the organization stated. “We mourn the loss of our dear friend and our thoughts and prayers go out to Jock’s wife Penelope and his entire family.”

ALAN’s board of directors has appointed Kathy Fulton, ALAN’s current director of operations, to serve as the interim president.

Donations in Menzies’ name can be made to American Logistics Aid Network via the ALAN website at or via mail to CSCMP, 333 E Butterfield Rd, Lombard IL 60148.
