Everett Alvarez, Soligent’s Director of Operations, has an incredibly infectious laugh. Those of us who work closely with him will contest that he is a hard-working, goal-oriented leader, who brings passion and knowledge to all tasks at hand. His 20-year military background has taught him to “think on the go” and that supply chain is his passion. He started his Airforce career in supply chain and motivated him to “follow his passion” and earn his Masters in Supply Chain Management from La Verne. Everett has done a phenomenal job at Soligent and we couldn’t be happier to call him a friend. Please read on to learn more about him.

What’s one totally irrational fear that you have?
Clowns! Most seem to think it is irrational, even though I find it quite rational. It’s just unsettling to see folks dressed up in exaggerated features and gravitate towards kids. Has anyone ever asked what the kid is seeing from their point of view!? Scary is what they are!
