The month of March celebrates and honors women's history and achievements. 48forty is celebrating Women's History Month by spotlighting some of our colleagues who inspire us all. We spoke with several women about their experience and growth in the supply chain industry. Read on for their stories! (Answers have been lightly edited for clarity.)
How did you start your supply chain career?
Kate Matz, Regional Business Development Manager
"I came from a career in outside sales – from working art shows as a child to being the top Jack Daniels salesperson in Florida. I met my husband; Travis Matz, at a work event and knew he was the one. At that time, I relocated to Pittsburgh and haven’t looked back.
"Open to change/flexibility; Customer Service mindset; Good communication skills."
"Having firm confidence in your skills, knowledge, and what expertise you bring to the table will allow you to elevate yourself in those conversations and earn you the opportunity to shine among your male peers."
48forty celebrates team members for their hard work and dedication to our customers and our business. Women's History Month provides an opportunity to recognize the many accomplishments of women across the world. 48forty is committed to empowering all employees to learn, grow, and succeed on the job, and looks forward to seeing women continue to succeed within our organization.
