Merchants Fleet is proud to announce that Diana Holland, VP of Strategic Pursuits has been selected as a recipient of the 2022 Women in Supply Chain award by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. This award 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.
“It’s always exciting whenever any of our colleagues receives an award, but this one is extra special,” said Brendan P. Keegan, Chairman, CEO & President of Merchants Fleet. “Not only does this shine a bright and deserving light on one of the best minds in the business, but it also highlights the enormously valuable role that women play in the fleet industry. We are so proud of Diana and honored to have someone of her caliber on the Merchants team.”
This year’s list of Women in Supply Chain award winners includes individuals from software and service providers, consultancies and academia, trucking and transportation firms, professional development agencies, sourcing, and procurement divisions, and more, all who have helped supply chain clients and the supply chain community at large prepare to meet many of today’s—and tomorrow’s—challenges.
“When I launched this award three years ago, I was prepared for an uphill battle. I was envisioning a long road ahead in getting the supply chain industry educated enough as to why it was important to recognize women in the supply chain. But, this award, the winners and those who submitted nominations—both men and women—is a testament that supply chain organizations were already recognizing their female leaders; they just needed a better platform,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “This year, we received over 280 submissions. Almost 100 of those submissions came from men. I’m so proud of everyone who participated, both men and women. I’m proud to call these women mentors, role models and industry friends. I’m proud to interview them, support them and help promote their journey.”
