PLOVER, Wis. — Women in Trucking has entered its third year with some changes to its board of directors.
Val Liese has resigned from the board to focus on her role as the first female president of the California Trucking Association, the group announced. Replacing here will be Mark Rousseau, national logistics manager of Frito-Lay.
“We will greatly miss Val and her passion for our association, but we know that she is positively influencing trucking issues in California,” said Ellen Voie, president and CEO of Women in Trucking. “While Val is creating history in California, Mark is breaking a gender barrier in our organization by being the first male member of the Women in Trucking board of directors.”
Two other directors have also resigned, to spend more time running their businesses. Susan Fall of LaunchIt PR and Lana Batts of Transport Capital Partners have stepped aside.
“The board regrets losing both Lana and Susan and we wish them the best and thank them for their efforts in making Women in Trucking Association the success that it is today,” said Voie.
