Trinity Logistics, a leading third-party logistics (3PL) provider, is proud to share that the company’s President, Sarah Ruffcorn, is a recipient of the 2023 Women in Supply Chain award.
Selected to receive the award by Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, this recognition honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship, and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network. This year, there were over 400 submissions, the highest number of applications ever submitted.
“I am both honored and humbled to receive the 2023 Women in Supply Chain award,” said Sarah. “I have immense gratitude for all the coaching and support I’ve received throughout my years at Trinity. Thank you to the leaders and mentors I’ve worked with who have challenged and empowered me, to my Team who have trusted and supported me, and to my husband and family who have given me unwavering support and encouragement to live out my God-given gifts. Thank you all!”
Sarah has a 20-year tenure at Trinity Logistics, having started as a dispatcher in Carrier Sales and holding several leadership roles before being named President in 2019. Within her current role, Sarah works to ensure all Trinity Team Members, regardless of gender, have access to both leadership training and opportunities. Sarah also makes waves within the industry by serving on the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) Board of Directors, as well as a co-chair of its Women in Logistics Committee, helping engage and promote women within the logistics industry.
“I’ve had the privilege to work alongside Sarah Ruffcorn for the past seventeen years and would describe her as a visionary and strategic leader with a gracious, compassionate, and humble heart,” said Doug Potvin, Chief Financial Officer at Trinity Logistics. “With these qualities, she’s excelled as a dynamic leader, not only for Trinity Logistics but in the logistics industry as well, leaving a legacy for future women in the industry to model. Sarah, in all that she does, embodies all the company’s core values and is a worthy recipient of the 2023 Women in Supply Chain Award.”
While the supply chain industry is excelling at incorporating more women in the supply chain, there’s still more work to be done. That’s why four years ago, Supply & Demand Chain Executive launched this award to champion women who are making a difference and thank them for their inspiration to possible leaders.
“Sarah is a servant leader through and through,” said Anne Reinke, President and CEO of TIA. “She focuses on her team, and how to help them succeed, while still steering the ship of a large and complex logistics company. We at TIA are lucky to have her on our Board of Directors, and this recognition of her excellence is well-deserved.”
