Cherry Hill, NJ: Jeb Bush, former two-term Governor of Florida and current political and education consultant, is a featured speaker at the AmeriQuest Transportation Industry Symposium, April 12-13 in Orlando.
Bush will address trucking executives from North American private fleet, truck leasing, truckload carrier, and transportation supply chain companies on the pressing topics, including economic growth, the importance of free enterprise, and his view of the value of a sound immigration policy.
Governor from 1998 through 2007, Bush traveled the world during that time, promoting Florida’s business-friendly climate, helping the state lead the nation in job growth. He also reformed the state’s education system, helping Florida students achieve their greatest gains during his tenure. He put Florida in the forefront of consumer healthcare advances by signing landmark Medicaid reform legislation, as well.
At present, Bush heads his own successful consulting business, Jeb Bush and Associates, with clients ranging from small technology start-ups to well-known fortune 500 companies. He also chairs the Foundation for Excellence in Education, a national organization. He began his career as founder of a small real estate development company, which grew to become the largest full-service commercial real estate company in South Florida.
The AmeriQuest Symposium brings together thought leaders to study the state of the transportation industry, including ways to maximize opportunities for growth. Other featured speakers include MLB executive and inspiration for the film “Moneyball,” Billy Beane; Gary Petty, President and CEO of the National Private Truck Council; and innovation expert Robert Tucker. The event also offers educational sessions and a trade and technology reception.
The event takes place at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes. More information is posted on the AmeriQuest Website http://www.ameriquestcorp.com/symposium. For sponsorship and exhibitor information, contact Kate Barnes at kbarnes(at)ameriquestcorp(dot)com or at 856-382-4701.
