Since 1974, Marcia Taylor has been building her family-owned transportation and logistics company into a global corporation with annual revenue in excess of $260 million. On Apr. 8, at Clayton State University, Taylor will share some of her experiences and expertise as the president and CEO of Bennett International Group as part of the College of Business’ Jim Wood Speaker Series.
Taylor’s presentation will run from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in room UC272 of the James M. Baker University Center, and is free and open to the public.
For more than 40 years, Taylor has overseen the growth of Bennett International Group from a small intrastate carrier to a global logistics solutions provider that offers flatbed, specialized freight, commercial vehicle, RV and manufactured housing transport, supply chain, warehousing and distribution services, international freight forwarding and portable building manufacturing.
In addition, while creating her vastly successful business, she also instilled a philosophy that, “Giving back should be a part of any successful organization.”
In part as a result of that philosophy, the Taylor Family Foundation, a private family foundation established in 2012, of which Taylor is also CEO, has previously awarded a grant of $10,000 to the Clayton State University Foundation to support four upperclassmen majoring in Supply Chain Management at Clayton State.
