Women In Trucking Association President and CEO Ellen Voie Named Cinderella to CEO of the Year


PLOVER, Wis., Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Women In Trucking Association (WIT) President and CEO Ellen Voie was named the 2019 Cinderella to CEO of the Year, along with winning her award category, "Climbing the Beanstalk" for cultivating an innovative improvement to the workplace to create inroads for women to achieve career goals and enhanced work-life balance opportunities for all genders.

The Cinderella to CEO Awards recognize women who have overcome obstacles to change businesses, communities and industries for the better. The inaugural awards, inspired by the book From Cinderella to CEO, How to Master the 10 Lessons of Fairy Tales to Transform Your Work Life by Cary Broussard, occurred Thursday, August 8 at the JW Marriott Essex House, honoring 200 women across industries and communities who were nominated for the awards.

"Our goal is to accelerate the successes of women who have worked hard and helped others to also succeed by connecting them to opportunities and each other," said Cary Broussard, CEO of Broussard Global. "In 2030, women in the U.S. are expected to control 75 percent of the wealth in this country. We want the wealth to be in the good, caring hands of those who strive to make the world a better place."

Nine category winners, including Voie, were recognized by a distinguished Cinderella to CEO panel of judges for their support of other women, their transformational ability to overcome obstacles and barriers, and their desire to motivate others to accomplish their dreams. Each award category is tied to a chapter in Broussard's book.

"I am so honored to receive the very first Cinderella to CEO award, as there were hundreds of nominations featuring some amazing women who have done truly notable and altruistic projects," said Voie. "I am especially thrilled to be recognized by an organization outside the trucking industry, which makes the award even more special."

Prizes were provided by Carnival Cruise Line, 2020 Women on Boards, KPMG PGA golf clinics, The George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership, Broussard Global and the Cinderella to CEO "WAND" ambassadors.
