Burris Logistics, a provider of temperature-controlled food distribution services, said today it has named three members to its board, including the daughter of a fourth-generation family member.
The newest family member on the board is Allison Burris Castellanos, an educator and longtime advocate for the Hispanic community. Castellanos has taught English as a Second Language at Delaware Technical Community College for 17 years. With the appointment of Castellanos, who replaces her father, Howard Burris, the transition from fourth-generation Burris family members to the fifth generation is completed, Burris said.
Other Burris family members on the board include Brad Hoopman, Scott Burris, and Donnan R. "Donnie" Burris, who has been the company's CEO since 2010.
Milford, Del.-based Burris, founded in 1925, has a nine-member board comprised of four family members and five outside executives.
The two new non-family board members are Cathy Pulos, vice president and chief people officer at Wawa Inc., a privately held convenience store chain, and Zach Buckner, an entrepreneur whose companies include Relay Foods, a grocery company.
