Ryder CMO Honored Among Top Businesswomen
March 19, 2019—Ryder System Inc, a company specializing in commercial fleet management, transportation, and supply chain solutions, has announced that executive vice president and chief marketing officer Karen Jones was recognized by the South Florida Business Journal at its 2019 Influential Business Women Awards.
The annual award ceremony recognizes female executives from the Miami area for their career achievements, exceptional leadership, and community involvement.
“Throughout my career, I’ve been in fields that traditionally have been slower to have women in leadership positions,” says Jones. “However, if you know how to effectively build meaningful relationships across business segments and even industries, things like gender matter a lot less. People want to work with those who are confident, collaborative, and good at what they do.”
A member of Ryder’s leadership team, Jones is responsible for all marketing and new product development efforts that lead to revenue generation and better customer experiences, across Ryder’s business segments.
