Indianapolis-based Merchandise Warehouse Co. Inc. has announced the formation of an advisory board. The logistics company says the board will serve as an "integral part of providing guidance, knowledge, and experience."

Tim Siddiq, chief executive officer of Merchandise Warehouse, is one of the inaugural members of the advisory board. He says the board's formation will play a crucial role in the company's growth efforts.

The new advisory board members also include:

  • Todd Rokita, former U.S. Congressman and Indiana Secretary of State
  • Mark Jackson, Chairman, American Senior Communities Board of Managers
  • David Hartley, CEO, Hartley Holdings LLC 
  • Donald Foley, Director and Secretary

"Companies like Merchandise Warehouse, which was started, grown, and expanded right here in Indiana, is why our state continues to lead the nation," Rokita said in a news release. "It was my honor to join with community leaders for the ribbon cutting of one of Merchandise Warehouse's facilities in 2016, and since then, watch the company grow, innovate, and hire more Hoosiers. I look forward to working with the exceptional Merchandise Warehouse team led by Tim Siddiq and the new Advisory Board full experienced professionals all committed to advance a great Hoosier business."

Merchandise Warehouse is a logistics provider of temperature-controlled warehouse services with more than 560,000 square feet of storage between two facilities in Indianapolis and Pendleton. The company cut the ribbon on a $13 million expansion at its Indianapolis facility in 2016.
