Ideas for Tomorrow

Frederick W. Smith, founder and CEO, FedEx Corporation

GCP members are invited to attend the next program in the Cleveland Clinic Ideas for Tomorrow speaker series featuring Frederick W. Smith, founder and CEO, FedEx Corporation.

Born in 1944 in Marks, Mississippi, Smith is a 1966 graduate of Yale College. The original analyses about the logistic needs of a highly automated future society were done during his tenure as an undergraduate.

After four years of service in the Marines, including two tours of duty in Vietnam, he launched the original air-ground Federal Express network that began operations in 1973 to serve the rapidly growing high tech/high value added sectors of the economy Smith had predicted. The company has since grown into a $49 billion global enterprise. Click for registration details.
