The Lipscomb University Leadership Dialogue Program presents
Dr. Mark S. Hansen on Oct. 24, at noon in Allen Arena, 3901 Granny White

With nearly three decades in the food retailing and distribution business,
Hansen has a proven track record in achieving sales and earnings growth. He

With its national, multi-tier supply chain network, Fleming is the number
one supplier of consumer package goods to retailers of all sizes and formats
in the United States. In addition, Fleming is the nation’s leading
