“Dede is a great fit for MIQ Logistics,” says Joey Carnes, chairman and CEO. “She brings in-depth knowledge of supply chain operations from 12 years in the industry. Equally important, she understands the importance of business relationships and works tenaciously to establish new partnerships, ensure customer loyalty, and maintain an upbeat energy with fellow internal team members.”

As director of Sales for BostonCoach, Aguayo opened their new sales office in Southern California. Then, channeling her abilities in relationship development, Aguayo broadened her career into the field of education, holding positions of associate director of Corporate Education at the University of La Verne and later, director of Community Outreach at Ameritas College of Brandman University.
