Employee Spotlight: Dominic Paloni


Dominic Paloni has been a part of our South Mill family for the past 24 years! Dominic was born in Wilmington, Delaware and grew up in the mushroom business alongside his father and grandfather who were both mushroom growers. Dominic remembers working with his father when he was 4 years old and claims that he was already riding a tractor at the age of 7! In February, 1993, Dominic started at South Mill as an over-the -road driver, and in 2005, the opportunity arose for him to work in dispatch. After several years as Dispatcher, he was presented with another opportunity in our Transportation Department, and in 2012, he assumed the position of Manager. Dominic especially likes the problem solving required on the job, coordinating the loads, and meeting new people. These are all things he has the opportunity to do everyday. In his free time, Dominic enjoys riding his motorcycle, cooking outdoors on his smoker and shooting pool every week in a league in Maryland. Dominic’s son, also named Dominic, is now 21 years old and is hoping to soon join the Marine Corps. We wish them both continued success in their careers.
