For Carter Boyle, Duke University alumnus and private equity professional, companies/corporations like Koch Industries are a testament to what he’s always believed about success: that persistence, perseverance, and hard work will eventually pay off; often in ways that you couldn’t ever have imagined.

So what is Koch Industries exactly or to be more precise, who are they?

To describe Koch Industries in one word, Carter Boyle, Duke graduate, says that Koch Industries are innovators. They create and develop products and services that ease the lives of millions of people in the country and around the world. Koch Industries best describes who they are in their own words:

“Our life’s work is to help people improve their lives by making and innovating products and services our customers value. Our focus is on delivering mutual benefit: Win-win outcomes that make life better for customers and employees alike.”
