NEW ORLEANS — Two young African American leaders are set to lead the logistics industry.
The Louisiana State University graduates of the Panther International School of Management in New Orleans will join the company’s workforce in 2019.
The school is located in the University District in New Orleanis, and has grown to more than 1,200 students and more than 3,100 employees.
Its mission is to develop the next generation of Panther executives who will lead Panther to new heights, according to the school.
“The Panther International College of Management is focused on transforming the way companies move goods and people,” said the school’s President and CEO, Paul Williams.
“Our students will have a broad range of experiences, strengths and challenges, which will help them achieve their full potential in the global marketplace.”
The Panther international school was founded in 1969 and has a global presence.
Its graduates have worked on a wide variety of projects, including shipping container logistics, logistics and air transportation.
They have also worked on logistics for some of the world’s largest shipping companies, including Royal Dutch Shell, Singapore Airlines, UPS and Cargill.
Panther International School is the first African American school to be accredited by the U.S. Department of Education, the state department said in a statement.
Williams is the school president and has served as its interim president.
In addition to the Panther executive positions, the school will have more than 2,000 faculty members, most of whom are African American.
The school’s enrollment has more than doubled since it was founded, with more than 8,500 students in the fall semester, the statement said.
