Women in Trucking has named former chairwoman Ellen Voie president of the organization. Leigh Foxall of Internet Truckstops will serve as chairwoman; Debbi Sparks of Truckload Carriers Association will serve as vice chairwoman and Lenora Hardee of Navistar/International Truck and Engine will serve as secretary/treasurer.
"The ability to now hire a president is such a testament to our growth," said Foxall. "In a year we have grown to 1,000 members, but equally important, we are getting the support from many corporations that believe in our mission."
Women in Trucking was founded in 2007 to encourage women to consider trucking as a career and to provide a platform for women already in a male-dominated field.
