Big River Management Change at Parkdale Location

Big River Rice and Grain is announcing a managerial change at the Parkdale location. Justin Johnson will now be the facility manager for the Parkdale site. Johnson formerly oversaw the Monticello facility but will now be transitioning into the day-to-day operations at Parkdale. Management trainee Romeo Stalling will be handling the Monticello facility as Johnson shifts into his new role at Parkdale.

Justin has served as an elevator manager in multiple locations since his original employment with Bayou Grain in 2003. He worked at Eudora, Arkansas, and then at Monticello, Louisiana. Justin has done an exceptional job of adapting to new situations and performing the duties required to be an effective manager. He is an asset to Big River, and we are looking forward to continued success as he adapts to this new challenge.
