Additionally, he worked internationally as an Assistant Attaché with the U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt, Germany.


CALEB MIXON, Vice President of Network Development for HomeSafe Alliance,  initiated his career in the transportation industry in 2008 within the claims department, steadily advancing to the position of Lead Adjuster. Caleb's journey then saw him excel in business development, ultimately earning the role of Director of Network Development, leading a highly successful team. Over the years, he has visited numerous warehouses and interacted with countless industry professionals.

He recognizes the potential in controlling the entire demand signal from USTRANSCOM and anticipates the significant efficiency improvements it will bring. Caleb eagerly anticipates initiating the first steps under the GHC, demonstrating these efficiencies, and delivering the highest level of customer service. 

One aspect of Caleb's work that he would like to emphasize is how rewarding a successful partnership with a service provider can be. He understands that collaborating with organizations that possess a deep understanding of business processes through extensive discussions, hard work, and due diligence is instrumental in delivering the exceptional service we strive for. To Caleb, the mission of HomeSafe Alliance holds profound meaning. He takes great pride in supporting our troops in any way he can and believes that it is a great honor serving them as customers, especially during challenging events such as relocations. 
On a personal note, Caleb shares that he is a father of two daughters. One is graduating high school this year and will soon be heading off to college, while the other is just 15 months old! Additionally, he reveals that football is his favorite sport and is a big supporter of both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Florida Gators. Growing up, his fondest family memories revolved around football, and he's more than just a fan; he has experience as a coach, and both of his younger brothers have gone on to play at the collegiate level!
