CEO Publication Names CEO Steve Linkhart Among Top CEO’s in America.
CalFoods Logistics CEO Steve Linkhart was named one of the Top 20 CEO’s in America. Steve made the list in addition to other Top 20 CEO’s in the United States by CEO Publication. Linkhart’s mission is to be a bridge between the State of California and California food banks. His collaborative leadership style and laser focus on helping end hunger in California exemplify his work with the State and food bank partners to provide nutrition and emergency food assistance for people experiencing food insecurity in all 58 counties.
Linkhart has over 20 years of experience working in the food banking world and has a solid reputation for always doing the right thing. He took his knowledge and expanded his horizons to create CalFoods Logistics, a nonprofit in the Bay Area. CalFoods Logistics is at the head of the federal commodity program for California. They are responsible for ordering all the food for food banks and managing the State’s special food projects. Linkhart mentioned, “over the past 18 months, we have shipped over 4 million emergency food boxes to food banks throughout the State. In addition, we were able to support several tribes located in more rural areas of the State.
“I appreciate the Top 20 CEO recognition from CEO Publication and will share this acknowledgment with my incredibly dedicated team that makes me the CEO I am today. Without a good team, CalFoods Logistics would not be what it is today. And we would not be able to serve our statewide communities the way we do,” said Linkhart.
