WDS’s Jason Strickland takes the helm of the Propeller Club of Norfolk as President
On Thursday, Dec. 2, World Distribution Services’ Director of Domestic Pricing, Jason Strickland, was sworn in as president of the Propeller Club of Norfolk.
Of the announcement, WDS Vice President, Dale Young, said, “We are so proud of Jason for this accomplishment. Mr. Strickland exemplifies our core values and his undertaking of this role demonstrates WDS’s commitment to our local markets and maritime communities. It’s great to see our leaders getting involved and working to promote and enhance our industry.”
“It is an honor to be named the next president of the Propeller Club of Norfolk,” said Jason Strickland. “My big initiative for the club in 2022 will be ‘opening back up’. We historically have several networking events throughout the year, but unfortunately, due to COVID, we’ve been unable to hold a majority of these events for the last two years. My goal is to get the club back on track with having these events, COVID-permitting of course. I look forward to serving our maritime community in Virginia and bringing everyone back together.”
The Propeller Club of Norfolk has over 300 members from all parts of the supply chain and holds its famous annual Oyster Roasts in April and October and south Hampton Road’s National Maritime Day Celebration in May. It also champions fundraisers and scholarship awards for students in the maritime industry.
