Warner Robins’ Saylor honored at DLA 51st annual employee recognition ceremony

By DLA Distribution Public Affairs

DLA Distribution Warner Robins, Georgia, distribution warehouse supervisor Michael Saylor was honored as one of the agency’s top 10 employees during DLA’s 51st annual employee recognition ceremony held in the McNamara Headquarters Complex Auditorium, Fort Belvoir, Virginia, Dec. 13.


Saylor, a one-year member of the Warner Robins team, led the seven-person Special Asset team in safeguarding and managing a 155,000-item Air Force warehouse and processing materiel for Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex valued at $37 million through the Enterprise Solution-Supply system.


Through his leadership and guidance, Saylor’s team processed over 9,000 receipts, nearly 8,250 picks and more than 9,700 shipments with 100 percent accuracy.  Additionally, he led his ES-S team in relocating more than 1,300 Air Force assets, valued at approximately $386,000 within the ES-S warehouse to make room for an additional 4,400 assets coming from the metals warehouse as part of a special re-warehousing project to improve operations, safety, cost effectiveness and employee morale.


According to Michael Brown, Special Assets branch chief, one of Saylor’s greatest strengths is teambuilding.  Saylor collaborates with the 78th Air Base Wing Logistics Readiness Squadron to spearhead and devise a strategy to provide drain and purge certification statements for over 75 surplus equipment items identified for disposal through DLA Disposition Services. 


“His actions ensured the agency was in compliance with equipment disposal environmental laws for material containing petroleum-based products--a vital win for the host installation environmental office and DLA,” said Brown.


Saylor also oversees complex assignments in other sections with positive results.  He oversaw the building of more than 730 Time Compliance Technical Orders (TCTO) for the Flight Data Recorder F15 program, ensuring that units worldwide received the necessary and critical components to upgrade their fleet of F15 aircraft with zero errors.


Additionally, he assisted in the redevelopment and maintenance of the TCTO database, with provides detailed insight on completed kit builds and builds awaiting completion, tracking 1,600 incoming TCTO National Stock Numbers valued at $54 million.


“Mr. Saylor is a phenomenal leader who possesses a strong ability to make things happen.  His ability to bring together divergent views and empowering his team in solving problems is noteworthy and what a true leader is all about,” said Brown.
