How a Florida Tech graduate in Melbourne helped CarMax transform an industry.

Tom Folliard graduated from Florida Tech and began working at a local used car wholesaler. After a visit from the founders of what would later be CarMax, he became employee #1. Since then the company has grown to change and disrupt the field, becoming the largest used-car retailer and #174 in the Fortune 500. In this talk, Tom will explain how CarMax grew so quickly and it’s journey to the top of its industry.
