Springfield, VA – May 9, 2013 – Interstate Van Lines was recently honored by being named one of the University of South Florida (USF) Alumni Association’s elite USF Fast 56, which represents the 56 fastest growing USF Bull-owned or Bull-led companies in the world. Companies were ranked within the top 56 based on the perentage of cumulative annual growth in sales or revenue from 2010-2012, as documented by Ernst & Young, a public accounting firm based in Tampa.

John D. (J.D.) Morrissette, president of Interstate Van Lines, graduated with a bachelor’s of Business Administration from the University of South Florida in 1985. He attended the inaugural USF Fast 56 awards dinner and reception in Tampa, FL. Of the award, he says, “We were thrilled to be recognized by an institution known for their success in business education. I have always been grateful and proud to be a part of USF, and I look forward to sharing my business experience with the students there.”
The Alumni Association revealed the final rankings to a sold-out audience at the event, which was held at the USF Marshall Center Ballroom on campus and presented by Hancock Bank. USF alumni and Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III was the keynote speaker.
