Brandon Ali
Operations Manager
Account: Bimbo Bakeries Maintenance Facilities

Brandon Ali was promoted to Transervice Operations Manager in 2022, with responsibility for overseeing seven truck maintenance facilities for its customer, Bimbo Bakeries, the largest commercial baking company in the U.S.

This new role culminated a 25-year career journey that ironically started at Bimbo Bakeries in Bay Shore, NY, where he had spent 20 years as a first-class mechanic, from 1997–2010.

Brandon left the company in 2010 to work as a mechanic for a painting company, but three years later, when Transervice was awarded the maintenance contract for Bimbo Bakeries, his former bosses at the Bay Shore location recommended Transervice hire him based on his performance there.

He joined the Bimbo Bakeries team in 2013 as a first-class mechanic at the Maspeth/Queens location where he worked closely with the foreman to familiarize him with the operation, staffed with 4 mechanics servicing 125 trucks.

Primarily due to his success at streamlining the system in Queens, Brandon was promoted in 2015 to take over the Foreman’s position at the company’s same-size operation in Bay Shore. He described the move as “like going home again.”

“When I joined Transervice I was looking for promotional opportunities,” he said. “I’ve done well in my career because I’m the kind of person who always wants to be sure everything is done right.”

When he moved up to the Operations Manager job — managing 22 people in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York — Brandon relied on his field experience as a mechanic to work closely with his crew to ensure safe practices and “buttoned up the operations” to further improve efficiencies and quality control.

“I’ve always had good relationships with the people I work with,” said Brandon. “That opened up a lot of promotional opportunities for me. You have to reach out and apply yourself every day if you want to move up.”

Brandon resides in Islandia, NY with his wife Rosa.
