In her role as Executive Vice President, Woodall is responsible for assisting with the general management of the company. This includes overseeing core functions such as Human Resources, Payroll, Purchasing and Procurement, and Community Outreach.
As a second-generation co-owner of the company, Barbara has spent almost her entire life working in the logistics industry. After several years working in the travel industry, she was approached by her parents to come to work at Bonded to help them out on a temporary basis. Woodall started working for the family business in 1986 at the company’s headquarters performing clerical duties. This led to a permanent position less than a year later as an Office Clerk at their second location where she was responsible for answering phones, handling paperwork, and scheduling appointments. In 1988, she transitioned back to the company headquarters where she took on a role as a Customer Service Representative. She was also instrumental in training and implementation when the company incorporated Accuplus in early 90’s, the company’s first automated warehouse management system.
As the company transitioned to Bonded Logistics in 2001, Woodall became co-owner and expanded her role as a “utility player” for business operations. In 2007, in addition to customer service and HR responsibilities, she took on the function of purchasing and procurement corporately as well as for several customers across the company’s divisions. She also inherited payroll duties in 2000, which she still handles today for over 300 temporary and full-time employees.
In addition to her work functions, Barbara organized and manages the company’s Community Outreach Committee formed in 2009. What began as a way to help employees through tough times has transitioned into a six-person team with events for local and national charities every month of the year. Benefiting charities include the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte, Samaritan’s Purse, American Heart Association, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, A Child’s Place, and the Salvation Army.
