The Allen Lund Company BB #:107465 is pleased to announce the promotion of Heather Honabach to General Manager of the ALC Phoenix office.

Honabach previously served as the Assistant General Manager of the Phoenix office. She fills the General Manager position left open after Matt Minthorn was promoted to Senior Director of Carrier Development.

Tracey Lewin, Vice President of Sales and Operations, stated, “I am very excited to welcome Heather Honabach to her new position as the new GM of our Phoenix, AZ office. Heather came to us 6 years ago, with over 20 years of experience in the industry. Besides her boots-on-the-ground know-how, she brought vast knowledge, pure hunger, and an irrepressible drive to continue on her career path while supporting Matt Minthorn and helping to lead the rest of the Phoenix team. From Broker to Assistant General Manager, she has been an integral part of the office’s growth and success, and I know she will continue to move mountains in her new role. I look forward to working more closely with Heather as she puts her vision for the office into play! Congratulations, Heather, on a job well done and a promotion well deserved!”

Matt Minthorn shared, “I realized from the very first day I hired Heather that she had a great passion for our industry and the drive to become a leader. She was quick to learn, and eagerly took on every responsibility to develop herself. Heather has been an invaluable asset to our office and to ALC. I have full confidence that she will excel in her new position and take ALC Phoenix to new heights.”

Reflecting on her promotion, Heather Honabach said, “First and foremost I would like to thank the entire executive team for trusting me with this opportunity. I would also like to thank Matt for being a great mentor and also trusting me to help him grow the Phoenix office. I have been a transportation broker for almost 21 years. I started with Allen Lund in 2018 as a Senior Broker and quickly proved to Matt and the team I was worth taking a chance on. I am eager to step into this role and continue to grow. We have a great team here and the possibilities are endless.”
