Celebrating Our SB Alumna/Faculty: Alexis Heifner Carrico ’03 (INTB/SPAN)
#MaroonMemories From the Archives:
For Carrico, an Ohio native who competed on the College’s equestrian team and also majored in Spanish, a study abroad trip to Chile was the “hook” that led to her first job out of college. “The company I worked for was Chilean, and the fact that I understood the Chilean culture and could speak Spanish helped me not only land the job but also to get promoted quickly,” she says.
After earning an MBA from Georgetown, Carrico began working in finance at Nike before moving to the supply chain group. Since then, traveling and experiencing different cultures all over the world have been mainstays of her job.
“While working at Nike I’ve traveled all over South America and Asia, to Europe (including Russia), and even to Australia – so I’ve loved not only working in those countries, but also learning about the history of the places I’ve visited, the people, the food and the culture.”
Alexis Carrico joined the College of Charleston School of Business as an instructor for the Department of Management and Marketing in the fall of 2017. Prior to teaching, Carrico worked for global corporation Nike, Inc. as an emerging markets program director. She also served as the supply chain process manager for Masisa, Inc.
Alexis uses her general management, international business, supply chain, sustainability, analytics and finance background to bring business-world insights to the classroom.
No stranger to the CofC classroom, Professor Carrico is an alumna of the College, receiving her undergraduate degrees in International Business and Spanish. She also holds an MBA in International Business and Diplomacy from Georgetown University.
