Student Spotlight Brian Bushelow For West Chester, Pennsylvania-native Brian Bushelow, the important role that material handling plays in the supply chain is what drew him to the industry. "I have always been interested in what goes on in the background of companies," Bushelow says. "I became interested in material handling because it is a major part of all businesses and the part that can make or break a company." Bushelow, a graduate of East Carolina University's Industrial Distribution and Logistics program, sees material handling as a field with limitless opportunities. "Material handling would make a good career for me because it has the challenges and opportunities I want in a career," he says. "It is an ever-growing field with endless possibilities. It will allow me to apply what I have learned, both through class and internships, while also allowing me to learn more." That challenge is a major draw for Bushelow, who plans to pursue a career in an industry like material handling or something similarly fast-paced. He says, "I want to be somewhere that will challenge me and provide me opportunities to learn and grown." In Fall 2014, Bushelow interned with NMHG in Greenville, NC. He graduated from ECU in May 2015. associated announces Organizational Changes To ensure a seamless transition after the retirement of Dave LeMaster, Vice President of Associated, the company announced two new positions.
