What is Carson Holmquist’s story?

Before Stream Logistics’ establishment in 2012, Carson Holmquist was a supply chain manager for one of the nation’s largest logistics companies. He began his career at this company as an intern while he was finishing his bachelor of science degree in business management at Arizona State University with W.P. Carey School of Business. The turning point of his career was when he was introduced to a naturally gifted and highly successful salesman, Chad Patton, through a shared mentor. With an operations background, he perfectly complemented Chad’s strengths. They quickly gravitated towards each other and grew a bond based on high professional standards.

At the age of 26, he took a huge risk to leave his secure career to co-create and launch Stream Logistics with his business partner, Chad Patton. They developed Stream Logistics from a start-up business, which utilized a kitchen as its initial office, to a multi-million dollar company headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona at the Optima Sonoran Village. Stream Logistics is a boutique logistics company with an unwavering emphasis on high quality customer experience. With a consistent, high-performing carrier network, Stream Logistics provides freight and transportation solutions for manufacturers nationwide.

Carson and his wife, Whitney, love to spend time with their son and enjoy watching him grow. Carson was raised by parents who always supported him and challenged him to be his best. They never let him settle for anything but A’s in school and expected his best effort in sports. Their continuous support and high expectations molded him to enjoy learning and improving. His dream is to be a positive influence on his children and help them build habits which lead them to happiness and success.

What makes Carson Holmquist fabulous?

We think Carson is fabulous for his drive and dedication to success and willingness to take risks. It takes a lot of guts to leave a secure and successful job for the uncertainty of starting your own business at just 26-years-old.
