TORONTO, ON - The career paths to leadership roles don't always take straight lines. Kelli Saunders, president of Morai Logistics, began by answering the ad for a telemarketing rep at a logistics company. Anne McKee, Chief Operating Officer at Trailer Wizards, began studying earth sciences. Michelle Arseneau, Managing Partner GX Transportation, was still in high school when she joined her sister at a fleet office job that paid better than local retailers.
"I don't know if I believe in career paths," McKee adds. "Meanderings used to work very well for me."
Despite the varied career paths, they share many similar career philosophies - and offered them up during Trucking HR Canada's recent Women with Drive summit in Toronto.
