Fly Honored with Michael Starnes Leadership Award

Buzz Fly was presented with the Michael S. Starnes Leadership in Logistics Award at the Greater Memphis Chamber’s Regional Logistics Council meeting Thursday, Aug. 2.

The award, presented in the form of a crystal eighteen-wheeler trophy, was given to Fly as past and the final president of the Memphis Uniport Association, which was folded into the Regional Logistics Council several years ago.

“When Buzz was president of the Memphis Uniport Association, he traveled around the world on his own dime to sell Memphis as America’s Distribution Center,” said Clifford Stockton, senior public policy advisor for the Chamber. “He is a truly committed logistics and distribution professional and has always been that way.”

Fly is vice president of Patterson Warehouses Inc., a Memphis-based third-party logistics company specializing in warehousing and distribution.
