IN PRINT: Brenda Cuthbert collecting hardware for the softer side of the trucking industry
Brenda Cuthbert never planned to work in the trucking industry. But the vice president of human resources at Siemens Transportation Group and this year's winner of the Trucking HR Canada Top Fleet Employers HR Leader Award - and the first woman in 80 years to win the Saskatchewan Trucking Association's Service to Industry Award - knew right away that she and her longstanding employer were a fit. "It was the funniest interview," she recalls of the first day with Siemens Transportation Group owner Erwen Siemens, about 28 years ago. "It was all about family, and he showed me the whole company within the first half hour."
