One of the Army’s most skilled logisticians, Major General Vincent Boles (Ret.) has decades of experience in managing the world’s largest and most complex supply chain, from the port to the Pentagon, and he gives audiences the benefit of his considerable leadership and supply chain expertise.
General Boles served in a variety of assignments over a 33-year career, holding command positions at every level and serving in multiple combat deployments. His ﬁnal Army assignment was at the Pentagon as the assistant deputy chief of staff where he oversaw logistics operations and readiness for the 1.1 million soldier force, including the surges into Iraq and Afghanistan.
Vinny Boles' expertise is in leading people and building the teams in large organizations to accomplish the toughest tasks, supporting our deployed sons and daughters, under the toughest conditions — combat. As an expert in supply chain management, Vinny provided what our nation's troops needed, where they needed it and when, in order to be successful around the world.
Retiring in 2009 to Madison, Alabama, he established Vincent E. Boles, Inc., a leadership and logistics consulting practice. He’s been speaking and working with corporate and association groups around the nation and overseas, coaching them on the subject of teams’ “Best Getting Better.”
He is the author of the book 4-3-2-1 Leadership: What America’s Sons and Daughters Taught Me on the Road from Second Lieutenant to 2-Star General. Now in its third printing, the book prompted one reviewer to comment that “He didn’t write this book exclusively for the military audience, and he does us all a great service by putting these leadership lessons into one volume and sharing them.”
In 2011 he was inducted into the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps’ and Niagara University’s ROTC Halls of Fame. He serves as an adjunct professor of leadership and logistics at the University of Alabama Huntsville and the Defense Acquisition University, South.
