Appointment to higher education non-profit underscores AIT’s commitment to values, servant leadership

ITASCA, IL (Feb. 7, 2024) – AIT Worldwide Logistics, a leader in global supply chain solutions, is proud to announce the appointment of President and Chief Operating Officer (COO), Keith Tholan, to the board of Fulfillment Fund, a non-profit organization devoted to making higher education accessible for students from under-resourced communities in Los Angeles.

According to AIT Chairman and CEO, Vaughn Moore, Tholan's election to the board in December 2023 aligns well with the company’s core values, especially the dedication to community service that’s expected from leaders throughout the organization.

“We are thrilled to see Keith embrace this significant role with Fulfillment Fund,” Moore said. “This commitment to such a worthy non-profit exemplifies the spirit of servant leadership we value at AIT.”

Founded in 1977, Fulfillment Fund has been at the forefront of empowering first-generation and lower-income students to pursue and achieve their college aspirations. 

“It is a privilege to join such a dedicated team and culture at Fulfillment Fund where the focus is concentrated on providing students with additional resources to further their education,” Tholan said. “I'm inspired by the opportunity to contribute to an organization that is profoundly changing lives by making college a reality for so many deserving students. When I had the opportunity to meet some of the young people whose lives have been improved by Fulfillment Fund, I knew I had to become more involved."

As one of Los Angeles' most established college access organizations, Fulfillment Fund not only guides students to college but also supports them through to graduation, equipping them with essential life skills for a successful transition into the professional world.

Fulfillment Fund Chief Executive Officer, Joanne Reyes, noted that the board of directors admires Tholan’s passion for building communities and his aspirational vision.

“We were excited to welcome [Tholan] aboard from the moment we met him,” Reyes said. “Keith's proven leadership at AIT, particularly in fostering a healthy organizational culture and unity among teams, positions him as a great asset to the board and our mission to empower students.”
