Heavy-duty: Despite likely inbound recession, factors continue to dull sharp truck downturn
Navistar and the Women In Trucking Association (WIT) presented Marcia G. Taylor, president and chief executive officer, Bennett International Group LLC, with the fourth annual Influential Woman in Trucking award at this week’s Truckload Carriers Association annual meeting.
The Influential Woman in Trucking award recognizes women in the trucking industry who make or influence key decisions, have a proven record of responsibility, and mentor and serve as a role model to other women. WIT and Navistar teamed up to develop this award in 2010 as a way to honor female leaders in trucking, and to attract and advance women within the industry.
“Women make a difference in the trucking industry every day, and the goal of the Influential Woman in Trucking award is to shine a spotlight on their contributions,” said Jan Allman, vice president of manufacturing at Navistar. “Navistar is proud to honor Marcia Taylor for her leadership in the trucking industry.”
WIT and Navistar also honored three runners-up for this year’s award: Amy Boerger, general manager and field sales and service, Cummins Inc.; Kim A. Kaplan, president and chief operating officer, K-Limited Carrier Ltd.; and Stephanie Klang, professional driver at Con-way Truckload.
