UMSL Supply Chain Expert Reflects On Industry Possibilities, Lessons Of 2020

George Zsidisin studied political science and music in college. But he also participated in the Army ROTC, and after serving as a quartermaster of logistics in the military as a young man, he strayed from his initial academic interests. He reentered civilian life equipped with a different skill set, one he soon put to use in the world of supply chain management and research.

The supply chain is an aspect of life many people take entirely for granted — except when local stores run out of, say, toilet paper, hand sanitizer and food staples. But it’s a critical system that, even before 2020, has often meant the difference between life and death.

And if you ask Zsidisin, who now spends much of his time instructing aspiring supply chain professionals, he’ll tell you the job security in the industry is also a plus.

“People will always need stuff,” he said. “So I figured if I could get into a field where there’s always going to be a demand for it, well, that makes sense to me.”
