Geoff Head ShotPreston, Maryland - Local entrepreneur and businessman Geoff Turner has accepted an invitation to become part of Salisbury University’s Executive Advisory Council. An alumni of the Business School, Turner has transformed a small logistics company in Preston, Maryland, into a nationally renowned third-party logistics provider with five locations and more than 260 employees.

Turner’s company, Choptank Transport, is well known at Salisbury University. Two years ago the college partnered with the rapidly growing logistics company to offer its first Choptank Transport Annual Sales Program and scholarship as part of the Mid-Atlantic Sales and Marketing Institute (MASMI).

“We have had the privilege of employing many high-caliber students from Salisbury University,” Turner said. “Being asked to serve on the Executive Advisory Council is not only an honor, it’s a pleasure to be able to play an important role in the continuing evolution of the Business School while helping to maintain its overall quality and reputation.”

Perdue School of Business, it is an important part of its business education and development program; a program that benefits both parties upon graduation.

Choptank Transport is in the process of completing an 11,000 square foot addition that will allow the company to hire 130 new employees over the next few years.  Attracting new and diverse talent to better serve Choptank’s growing customer base is one of the company’s primary goals for 2016-2017.
