Danville resident Rick Mizzo, director of account and supply base management for ALOM Technologies, has been named to the board of directors of the Association for Corporate Growth of Silicon Valley.
The Silicon Valley chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth is a networking organization for executives driving their company's growth strategy. It strives to provide business professionals with direct and referral access to key business leaders and practical experiences for career growth and business development.
"This organization brings together both seasoned and young executives who are able to collaborate and share experiences in extremely rewarding high level discussions," Mizzo said in a statement earlier this month.
"ACGSV has created a phenomenal knowledge base that gives C-level executives an opportunity to work together," he added. "I look forward to giving back and mentoring young executives through the ranks."
Mizzo has background in logistics, supply chain, transportation and wholesale food distribution. He served as vice president of manufacturing and supply chain operations at PINC Solutions for five years, and he previously held a variety of roles with companies such as Corgi International, Inc., Pacific American Services, Safeway and Frito-Lay, Inc., among others.
Sally Pera, CEO of Silicon Valley chapter, said she is excited to welcome Mizzo to the board and she feels that he will be a good addition based on his background.
"We look forward to the knowledge and expertise he will bring from a long and successful career in logistics and supply chain management," Pera said in a statement. "Rick, as well as several new members, who have yet to be announced, will continue our tradition of having one of the strongest boards of any organization in the valley."
