KaTom CEO Patricia Bible speaks at Carson-Newman University

(Sept. 25, 2014) – KaTom Founder, President and CEO Patricia Bible recently spoke with Carson-Newman University students as part of the Executive Speaker Series, sponsored by the University’s Business Department. The recent event was held in Thomas Recital Hall.

During the event Bible, a Morristown native, shared her personal story as well as the story of KaTom Restaurant Supply, an East Tennessee-based wholesale distributor started by Bible and her late husband, Tim. The CEO has risen from poverty to the head of a multi-million dollar company, which Bible reports as the fourth largest in the nation of its kind. Her leadership has earned KaTom six consecutive years on the Inc. magazine 500|5000 list of the fastest growing companies in America.
