With all the distractions going on in Washington these days, it’s easy to forget that there is still a government infrastructure that keeps on cranking. And something of interest to logisticians took place earlier this month.
The Senate confirmed Jovita Carranza to lead the Small Business Administration, the first permanent head of the agency since Linda McMahon left a year ago. Ms. Carranza took her oath earlier this month.
According to Forbes.com, “Early in her career, Carranza worked at UPS, where she started as a part-time, night-shift box handler and worked her way up to become the company’s President of Latin America and Caribbean operations.”
The SBA became a cabinet level position in 2012. Connect the dots, and you will realize that there is now a proven, successful, and experience logistician who is one of the most senior positions in the federal government.
There is a Cabinet Secretary that understands the world of the logistician.
