(Mt. Sterling, IL)Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI), the affiliate trucking company of Dot Foods, North America’s largest food industry redistributor, announces Bryan Langston will serve as its next president. Langston, most recently Dot Foods vice president of warehousing, takes the helm from Paul Mugerditchian. Mugerditchian is stepping into an advisory role where he focuses on strategic projects for DTI as he works toward retirement.
Mugerditchian has been with DTI for 20 years, joining the business in 2001 as a logistics manager. He rose through the ranks, becoming president of DTI in 2008.
“We are grateful for Paul’s years of service to DTI,” said Dick Tracy, president of Dot Foods. “He steered DTI through tremendous growth with a high level of integrity, selflessness, and calm. His contributions have left an indelible mark on our business.
Langston brings more than two decades of experience across multiple departments at Dot Foods to his new role. He joined Dot in sales in 2000 and moved into the operations side of the business to oversee the warehouse at Dot’s Oklahoma distribution center in 2004.  Bryan and his family moved to Illinois in 2006, and he joined the warehouse team at Dot’s corporate headquarters. He was later promoted to general manager, and in 2017, he became vice president of warehousing.
“It is an incredible privilege to be asked to lead the outstanding team at DTI,” said Langston. “I love new challenges and look forward to what the future holds for the company and industry.
“Safety and staffing will dominate our time in 2021, as the DTI team returns to full speed during the pandemic recovery and beyond. We are growing our driver workforce by more than 10% across the country. This is an excellent time for drivers to come work with us. Our culture and commitment to the driver is second to none, and we want drivers to see Dot as a career not a job and hope they take full advantage of our strong benefits and pay packages.” 
While Mugerditchian is looking forward to more time to work on his golf game, he is also happy to be working with Langston in this new capacity, stating: “Bryan is a natural leader who understands the many facets of Dot and DTI. His warehouse experience will be a big asset, as our warehouse and transportation teams have to work together seamlessly to deliver the kind of customer service we expect.”
“We are fortunate to have these two talented leaders working together to ensure a seamless transition,” Tracy added. “We’ve achieved a lot of success at DTI, and I’m confident there’s much more to come.”
Langston and his wife Kelli live in Quincy, Illinois, with their two sons. He volunteers with the Boy Scouts of America Troop 1 in Quincy, where his son is a scout, and sits on the boards of a few local non-profit organizations.
