Jeremy Foy

I moved to Portland, Maine from New Hampshire in 2018 to be closer to family.  I have 4 grandchildren in Portland -- 2 in Maine and 2 in Oregon!

 

My professional background is in Logistics and Warehouse Management. Most recently, I worked for Nestle Poland Springs in Poland, Maine. While living in New Hampshire I worked for Goodwill of Northern New England as Warehouse and Logistics Manager. At one time, I also ran a local delivery company that operated in Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire.

 

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and visiting Maine’s beaches with my wife, Betsy and our dog Cody. Of course, I also spend as much time as possible with my grandchildren! I look forward to leading the PWH warehouse team as we prepare to ramp up our efforts to collect and distribute more medical equipment to our local communities and throughout the world."
