Beau Mosley, ’23, started his career as a police officer for the Kentucky State Police in 2009, then moved into transportation safety. Now Mosley is the chief risk officer and executive vice president for Usher Transport, Inc. The Hindman, Kentucky, native chose to attend EKU to carry on his family’s Colonel legacy, as his late father attended the university in the 70s and became a professor.

“My dad was very passionate about higher learning and loved being a Colonel,” Mosley said. “EKU was the obvious choice for me in order to continue that legacy.”

With highway safety at the heart of his career, Mosley’s current position involves developing and implementing robust risk management frameworks to identify, measure, monitor and mitigate risks. He also oversees company-wide safety and risk management programs, strategic plans and insurance lines.

The highlight of Mosley’s career has been finding the right fit with the right company. “It’s imperative to find an organization with solid morals and beliefs,” he said. “I’ve been blessed to win many awards during my time in my career, but the biggest win has been working with an organization that is founded on integrity.”
