DLA Distribution Bahrain's Paul Maxwell improves the organization through relationship building

By Julian Temblador DLA Distribution Bahrain

Defense Logistics Agency Distribution marks 25 years of making history and revolutionizing the future by showcasing the employees that make support to the warfighter possible. Paul R. Maxwell, a supply systems analyst with DLA Distribution Bahrain, has contributed significantly to organizational requirements during contemporary conflicts and peacetime missions.

 “The mission, great people and leaders I work with are the things that motivate me to come to work each day,” Maxwell said. “Looking back, I believe that DLA distribution’s most important contribution to the warfighter includes the relationships and effort we have provided to the services in present day conflicts and peacetime operations to include natural disasters.”

Maxwell has been working for DLA Distribution for 18 years and holds over 28 years in federal service.

Looking to the future, Maxwell discussed how his own efforts could be better informed by understanding all the various entities within DLA. “I believe communication, training and understanding our organization’s mission as DLA employees will help us improve as a group,” Maxwell said. “Training and completely understanding the DLA mission as a whole will help along the way.”

When discussing the most rewarding project he has worked on in his career with DLA Distribution, Maxwell mentioned setting up a Theater Consolidation Shipping Point in Germany. “With the DLA employees on hand and new hires transferring into the TCSP division, it was a challenge every day for DLA employees, new and old,” Maxwell said. “As a team, we accepted the challenge and broke through obstacles, all while meeting the customer’s needs. TCSP was a challenge, and every day was never the same.”
