EKU gridiron great Jim Guice welcomed CBT representatives to his AmeriQuest home in Coral Springs, Fla, this week.

CBT Dean Tom Erekson and Global Supply Chain Management Executive-in-Residence James Kirby Easterling joined Guice, who is the current AmeriQuest Corporation executive vice president. The group discussed included indirect and direct spending, outsourced logistics services and truck leasing strategies. AmeriQuest has annual revenues exceeding $1.7 billion and focuses on identifying and assisting small-to-medium sized firms become more efficient, lean and profitable through effective supply chain management practices.   

This visit was a great opportunity to highlight one of EKU’s fastest growing programs, Global Supply Chain Management, with 40 students currently enrolled. AmeriQuest is planning to provide a Global Supply Chain Management internship opportunity for an EKU student in Summer 2018 at their office in Coral Springs.
