She Believed She Could

This month we are putting the spotlight on our first Logistics Administrator, Jennifer Sloan, who goes by Jenn in the office. What better timing too- Jenn is coming up on her one year anniversary with PGT next week!

We are lucky to have Jenn on our team here. She wears a lot of hats and has proven to be a go-to person for just about anything. When someone has a question about carrier set-up, customer set-up, payables, receivables, or any daily task, Jenn is their first stop!

The logistics industry offers a variety of positions. Jenn handles a lot of the administrative tasks throughout the course of the day, but as we continue to grow, so will her responsibilities. The opportunities are endless in this industry, contrary to what most people think of when they think logistics. 

We asked Jenn if the logistics world is what she expected it to be. “Honestly, I didn’t really know what to expect. I just came in with an open mind, was willing to learn and ask questions, and pushed through the hard days,” she answered.

Jenn was in the trucking industry for eight years prior to joining the PGT team. She had gotten out of the industry for a few years, but when the opportunity presented itself, she wanted to jump back in.

“When I found PGT and learned about the vision and opportunity, I could see myself succeeding there,” Jenn explained. “I could tell I would be part of something big, so I wanted to get in on the ground floor so I could watch it grow from the start.”

Since we are talking about ladies in logistics, of course we had to ask her what advice she would give to other women thinking about starting a new career path. “I would tell them to go for it and to not be afraid of this industry. It isn’t always easy, but it is definitely worth it. There are so many roles available that it becomes very easy to find one that fits for you.”

When it comes down to it, Jenn’s journey in this industry started with the common motto: “She believed she could, so she did.”

The future is bright- for Jenn and for PGT! We look forward to her continued success.
