Rose Pallet VP Lends Her Perspective on Business, Leadership, and Family
Last month our vice president, Amy Olson, was profiled in PalletCentral magazine along with seven other female industry thought leaders to offer advice on business, leadership, and family.
The article was a perfect addition to the issue because the month of October is recognized as National Women’s Small Business Month. It is a time to honor the talented, dedicated, and driven women that are fueling the nation’s economy and transforming the American small business community.
According to the National Association of Women Business Owners, more than 11.6 million firms in the United States are owned by women, employing nearly 9 million people, and generating $1.7 trillion in sales as of 2017.
The uptick in women-owned businesses is growing among the pallet industry, too, as more and more females are entering the space. The massive contributions women are making in the industry call for celebration. In the article, PalletCentral shines a spotlight on a few of them along with other female industry entrepreneurs and top executives.
Our vice president was selected because she has dedicated her entire career to serving the pallet management needs of Fortune 100 and 500 companies across the nation. Among her numerous responsibilities, Amy assists in running day-to-day operations and managing the sales team. She and the other women profiled bring unique traits to a mostly male-dominated industry.
In particular, Amy describes her leadership style and those who helped inspire her along the way. She also addresses the area that challenges her the most in her role. Other topics discussed in the commentary include breaking the glass ceiling, favorite leadership books, employee retention and recognition, and more. Click here to read the article in full.
