LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Louisville-based HJI Supply Chain Solutions (HJI) is pleased to announce that Lynn Houston Moore has been promoted to be the company's CEO effective August 21, 2020. This announcement reflects the culmination of a six-year succession planning strategy to place the second generation of family at the company's helm. Alice and Wade Houston launched the third-party logistics and supply chain management company in 1994 and will retain their positions as HJI's Founders and owners.
Lynn has worked for HJI since 2007 in roles including Logistics Engineer, Financial and Logistics Manager and Vice President of Finance and Administration.

Lynn will represent the enterprise with customer, community, and philanthropic directives and initiatives as well as be an active voice in HJI's industry-related forums and activities.
"I'm honored to have the unique opportunity to continue our family's legacy at HJI," said Lynn. "We have big plans for the future, and I am thrilled to be working with an outstanding management team to further advance HJI's industry leadership and community engagement."
Joining Lynn in company leadership is Condrad Daniels, her brother-in-law, who joined the company in 2000 and was named HJI President in 2017. In addition to their family connection, both completed their undergraduate degrees in Industrial & Systems Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Lynn continued at Georgia Tech to complete her master's in industrial engineering and Condrad received his MBA from the University of Louisville.
"Wade and I are extremely blessed and fortunate to be able to pass the torch of company leadership confidently to Lynn and Condrad. They are each extremely qualified, prepared, passionate, committed, and 'battle tested,' and demonstrate in their daily lives the core values of HJI in our relationship with team members, customers, suppliers, and our community," said HJI Founder Alice Houston. "HJI was our dream, and now it is a shared vision, responsibility, and obligation of the family. We know that through their leadership, our family, the companies that we serve, and the communities in which we are based will be better off for their commitment and involvement."
HJI Owner Wade Houston added, "As parents, Alice and I are blessed – both in athletics and business – to know our family's legacy will continue. It is gratifying to see our children grow in confidence, commitment, and compassion. We look forward to witnessing the vision, innovation, energy, and continued contributions of HJI under the new leadership. I'm so proud of Lynn."
