Women In Trucking Association (WIT) and Freightliner Trucks are seeking candidates for the 2017 Influential Woman in Trucking award.
Now in its seventh year, the award recognizes women who make or influence key decisions in a corporate, manufacturing, supplier, owner-operator, driver, sales or dealership setting. The winner must have a proven record of responsibility and have mentored or served as a role model to other women in the industry.
Nominations will be accepted through Friday, September 1, at http://www.womenintrucking.org/influential-woman-2017.
The winner will be announced at the WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo held in Kansas City, Missouri, November 6-8.
Each finalist will be asked to serve as panelist for the “Influential Women in Trucking” panel discussion.
Mary Aufdemberg, director of acquisitions and operations, Daimler Trucks remarketing, and WIT Chairwoman, will moderate the panel. Those that nominate a candidate need to ask the nominee to save the date for this event if she is named a finalist.
Created in 2010, the award honors female leaders in the trucking industry. Past recipients include Marcia Taylor, CEO of Bennett International Group; Rebecca Brewster, president and COO, American Transportation Research Institute; Joyce Brenny, president of Brenny Transportation, Inc./Brenny Specialized Inc.; Rochelle Bartholomew, CEO of CalArk International; Kari Rihm, president of Rihm Kenworth; and Ramona Hood, vice president of customer operations, transportation logistics at GENCO, a FedEx company.
