Marcia G. Taylor, president and chief executive officer of Bennett International Group, has been named the 2014 Influential Woman in Trucking by the Women In Trucking organization and Navistar. The announcement was made at the Truckload Carriers Association annual meeting in Grapevine, Texas.
“I am very humbled and honored to receive this award,” Taylor said. “As I was growing up, I never planned on being in the transportation industry, but thankfully God had a much better plan for me than I had for myself. I love this industry. I love what it means. I love our drivers and our employees, and it has been a great 40 years.”
Established in 2010, The Influential Woman in Trucking award recognizes women who make or influence key decisions in a corporate, manufacturing, supplier, owner-operator, 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. The award encourages women to join the industry and pursue their goals.
Based in McDonough, Ga., Bennett International Group delivers integrated transportation and supply chain management solutions worldwide.
