OTTAWA, Ont. — Trucking HR Canada reveals today that Mandy Rennehan, one of the Women’s Executive Network’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women two years in a row, will be a guest speaker at the third annual Women with Drive summit on March 2, 2017 at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Centre.
As one of the country’s top female entrepreneurs, Mandy has built Freshco, the first full-service, 24/7, on-call retail maintenance provider into a highly successful, well-run and financially responsible retail maintenance and construction company with three collaborative divisions – maintenance, projects and reconstruction. Her honesty and passion for what she does have helped her assemble an impressive client list of Fortune 500 retail giants that include Apple, Nike, Lululemon and many others.
In addition to her business success, Mandy is trailblazing in other areas as well. At a time when more young people and women are needed to meet labor needs in the construction industry, Mandy is leading the way. Freshco’s workforce averages 29 years in age and she is working to encourage and support more women in the trades – having recently signed an agreement with Conestoga College to subsidize the living costs of every female in the trades program there.
“The workforce challenges faced by the construction industry parallel those in trucking” says Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada. “Mandy is succeeding on all fronts. Her story is truly inspiring, and one our delegates will not want to miss.”
