Keynote speaker announced for Living the Dream Conference


Meet Cindy Parker

Introducing our next Keynote Speaker for the 2024 Living the Dream Conference, Cindy Parker.
Cindy started her journey in temperature-controlled warehousing in March of 1994 as a shipping / receiving clerk at Zero Mountain, Inc. in Russellville, Arkansas while earning her bachelor’s degree in Economics/Finance and Marketing at Arkansas Tech University. After earning her degrees, Cindy stayed on at Zero Mountain. In 2012, she became the first female general manager for Zero Mountain. When Zero Mountain was acquired by Americold Logistics in 2019, Cindy seamlessly transitioned to Americold. Showcasing her expertise in cold chain logistics and operations led to her promotion to Director of Operations in March of 2023.
Cindy’s commitment to the cold chain extends beyond her day-to-day responsibilities. She has been involved with the Global Cold Chain Alliance since she graduated from WFLO Institute in 2012. She has served on the Supply Chain Operations and Government Affairs Committees and as IARW Southwest Chapter President. She currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Government Affairs Committee. Cindy joined TWAL in 2020.
Cindy is set to receive her MBA with an emphasis in Supply Chain Management from the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas this northern summer. Her dedication and hard work will undoubtedly serve her well as she continues her career in cold chain and operations.
