A bit of company news to share this month.  DCM Transport has added a new member to our Dispatch Team.

Please welcome our new dispatcher, Angie Johnson!  Angie was born and raised in the London Mills area as a “farm kid” and is currently residing in Maquon, where she has lived the last 25 years with her husband Ernie.  They have two children.  Daughter Elizabeth, who is graduating from Bradley University this May, and son Ben, who is currently finishing up his freshman year at Western Illinois University.  They also have two Blue Heeler dogs, Bo and Max.

Angie has her Bachelors of Business in Accounting from WIU and comes to us with a multitude of experience.  During her free time, Angie enjoys spending time with her family and dogs, reading, walking and shopping.  She also relishes time with friends on the river or around a fire.  Summer is Angie’s favorite season!
