First place goes to BONNIE SUPAN of Brenny Trucking Inc. located in St. Joseph, MN.Her nominee, Joyce Brenny wrote: Dear Among Women: In 1994 when I held the position of general manager of a trucking firm in the area, I met a bright, young woman by the name of Bonnie Supan.
I decided to hire Bonnie
as an Adm.Assistant.Bonnie
instantly became a "Champion" team member! In 1996 I felt that my experience in the trucking industry would be best suited as the owner of a trucking firm.Brenny Transportation was founded.I hired Bonnie Supan immediatly.After now 10 years in the trucking industry, Bonnie
has made her
way from Adm.Assist, to Dispatch, Customer Service, Team Leader and currently Bonnie is the Operations Manager of Brenny Transportation, Inc.
At this time Bonnie
oversees a staff of twelve.She
has helped our company grow to a 25-truck fleet and $7 million in gross revenue in 2003.Bonnie has a smile on her face, works endless hours, is an inspiration to our staff, has a Champion attitude to succeed and as far as I know, Bonnie is the only female Operations Manager in the trucking industry in Central Minnesota and probably beyond.
Working in an industry dominated by men is a challenge in itself.Bonnie
has never let that hold her
back.She is currently on the board of directors for the Mid-Central Minn. Transportation Club, and also holds the position of club Treasurer.
Whether behind the wheel or behind the desk, women…play a very important role in the supply of goods to America and without Bonnie Supan
, transportation in Central Minnesota would surely slow down!
