Employee Profile: Mike Lucas
After gaining more than a decade of great experience working at all levels of our transportation and warehouse operations in multiple distribution centers, Mike Lucas was promoted to Director of Operations for the Phoenix Distribution Center in 2015.
He joined us in 2004, leaving another food distribution company to become a driver for our Westampton, NJ distribution center. “When I left my previous employer no one was kicking me out the door,” said Mike. “But I saw a different, better opportunity here in the way they treated crew and drivers.”
Mike moved to our Colonie, NY distribution center when it opened in October 2005. He thrived in that new location. His promotion from Driver to Operations Supervisor in 2006 was primarily fleet-focused, but Mike oversaw both transportation and warehouse functions. He became Transportation Manager in 2012, and then was promoted to Operations Manager in 2014. In 2015, he took the top leadership role at our growing distribution center in Phoenix, Arizona.

Here are some employee quotes about the benefits of working at NDCP:
Our team members are always willing to help each other out even if it isn’t necessarily our job. Receiving helps the selectors, selectors help drivers, inventory helps receiving and we always have each other’s back to make sure our customers get the best service we can provide.”
I have worked here for almost 15 years, and my favorite part of the job is knowing I helped our customers resolve their concerns. It is fulfilling to guide my team in improving member service and solving challenges.”
Quality of life is really important here at NDCP. Our employees really appreciate what we’ve done with schedules to make sure that they’re getting more quality time with their families. It’s not a perfect scenario and we’re working on it daily.”
Maintaining a positive culture is very important at NDCP. I think a lot of that ties in with listening to the employees, watching them bring solutions to the table, and putting them in play as a leadership team. Making sure people are connected is probably the biggest morale booster.”
In the warehouse, our team always strives to have a good attitude and volunteer to train new employees, so we are always operating as a well-oiled machine.”
