Bryan Durham, who joined the Marshall Farmers Co-op Lewisburg warehouse staff in March, is moving up fast, being promoted to warehouse manager in August.

Bryan is the son of Rex and Sandra Durham of Howell. He is a 2004 graduate of Lincoln County High School.

Bryan has been married to the former Liz Mills of Kelso for eight years. Liz is in her first year of teaching first grade at Unity, after teaching kindergarten at Ralph Askins Elementary in Fayetteville.

The Durhams’ first child, Jacob, passed away. Son John Rhett is five years old. Daughter Maggie just turned six months old.

Bryan is a history buff. He also enjoys fishing, UT football (including attendance at home games), and camping. (He has a goal of eventually camping at every state park in Tennessee).

From 2005-2014 he held the position of dock lead in the Averitt Express warehouse, first in Fayetteville, then in Nashville.

After Averitt, Bryan ran his own business, Durham Power Washing & Lawn Care. He still mows yards on the side.

What does Bryan have planned for the Marshall Farmers Co-op warehouse? He says he wants to make the operation more efficient (getting feed, seed, fertilizer, chemicals, and fencing supplies to the customers as quickly and accurately as possible) and build a reputation for having the best Co-op warehouse in the state.
