Charlotte, North Carolina—When Scott Anderson founded Alliance Sales and Marketing in 2004, he had hopes that one day his three daughters would have an interest in learning more about the company he helped create. Scott’s aspirations for his family-run business are now a reality as Mariah and Eva Anderson, Scott’s two oldest daughters, are spending their summer interning at the company’s headquarters in Charlotte.
“I’m proud to say that Alliance is a family-owned business, and plans to be for generations to come,” said Scott. “Having Mariah and Eva onboard this summer to begin learning more about how we operate and differentiate ourselves from other food brokers is very exciting.”
Eva is double majoring in Management and Marketing at the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina and will graduate in 2021. Mariah, a communications major at Wingate University, is graduating a semester early in December of this year. For the summer, Eva is working with the data science team while Mariah is working with Alliance’s new in-house marketing team.
“I look forward to learning from my father,” said Mariah. “His passion for the people in this company and for his clients is something that my sister and I have always admired.”
Mariah plans to join the family business in January 2020 following graduation.
“At Alliance, we are future forward,” said Scott, “We don’t just aim for success in the next quarter, but for the next quarter century. We are building a legacy of integrity for our families and the families who work here.”
