Kerri Crowley began working at her parent's aircraft part's distribution company at 12 years old. By the time she left for college, she had performed an array of functions, including receiving, picking orders from stock, packing and shipping. Motivated by a desire for social justice, she studied criminology at FSU. After graduation, she went to work as a PI. Her skills as an investigator landed her a job at Allstate where she spent 18 years honing her analytical and decision-making skills, eventually moving into management. In 1999, she returned to Air Parts & Supply Company (APSCO) after losing her mother to brain cancer. From quoting customers, to ordering parts and entering orders, she worked in many positions before gravitating to quality and export compliance. Working in the highly regulated field of insurance equipped her with the needed skills to develop APSCO's first QMS, achieving ISO 9001:2000 certification in 2003. The company's ISO certification spurred growth internationally, which prompted her to tackle export control and creation of the company's first export compliance program. Come January, Kerri will take over as General Manager, a challenge she welcomes because it will allow her to continue doing something she loves with people she really enjoys.
