Ryan Keogh joins Pearl Abrasive team as Vice President - Operations

November 30, 2017 - Pearl Abrasive announced that they have brought Ryan Keogh on as Vice President of Operations. Ryan has held several operational leadership positions with the largest third party logistics operation in the world and in the U.S. military.

Ryan’s most recent role was as Managing Director and Vice President of Planning & Integration with Agro Merchants Group, which operates over 236 million square feet of warehouse and distribution space around the world. In a prior role with Mission Produce, Ryan helped open 2 new distribution centers and redesigned product flow to significantly improve delivery times for customers.

Prior to his civilian career, Ryan served in the U.S. Army for over 7 years, including several tours of duty in Afghanistan where he was a Captain in the 75th Ranger Regiment and earned both a Purple Heart and Bronze Star. While in the Army Ryan was also a Ranger Platoon Leader, a Company Executive Officer and an Operations Officer. He is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, and completed his MBA at Emory University.

“My experience in the military taught me that a well thought out plan will only take you so far,” said Ryan. “You have to have the right people in the right places for a successful mission. Pearl has an excellent team, as well as ownership support, and I am excited to work with this team to continue striving to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.”

As Vice President of Operations at Pearl Ryan will oversee the company’s 2 U.S. warehouse shipping locations, in Norcross, Georgia and Commerce, California, as well as the Canadian shipping locations.

“We are really happy to add Ryan to our team,” said Rich Berry, President of Pearl Abrasive. “He will apply the discipline from his military service along with his operational experience from both his civilian and military work to push us forward as we strive to be the preferred supplier to our industry.”
