Stillman School of Business Supply Chain Management Speaker Series: Cintas

As part of our Fall Supply Chain Speaker series, the Stillman School of Business and the APICS student chapter of Seton Hall hosted Cintas on November 1st. 2016.  Stillman students had the opportunity to attend and participate in an informative and enlightening presentation from Cintas, the well-known corporate service provider.  Many thanks for the assistance provided by Rebecca Grubb-Venancio and Bob Franco from Career Services.  And of course much thanks to Catherine Bianchi, our Director of Graduate Admissions.

Most importantly, thanks so much to our Dean Joyce Strawser who supports these events, who provides these wonderful opportunities for our students to make sure we translate the concepts we teach in our classrooms into practice.

Speakers from Cintas were:

Andrew Daniello, General Manager,

Jason Kay, Territory Manager (and a Seton Hall Alumus)

Carlene A Williams, MBA, AIRS-PRC | Talent Acquisition Manager
