Wes Kemp, retired president and CEO of ABF Freight System, will be a guest speaker in my Transportation class on March 13th at 3PM in the College of Business auditorium.
Mr. Kemp's lecture will focus on capitalism and its virtues. He recently taught a class on Capitalism and the Supply Chain at the University of Arkansas and, having personally heard his views on the subject at a different venue, his lecture promises to be both informative and enjoyable.
ABF Freight System (Ft. Smith, AR) is the largest subsidiary of Arkansas Best Corporation, the 5th largest LTL trucking company, and the 13th largest overall trucking company in the United States as ranked by Transport Topics. Mr. Kemp took over ABF during the recession in 2010 and guided the company back to profitability before retiring in December 2011. His career with ABF spanned over 40 years.
