Ludmila Manin, a remarketing sales associate at Fleet Advantage, was named a winner in Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2021 Women in Supply Chain Awards. The awards honor female supply chain leaders whose accomplishments, mentorship activities and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network.
Manin has been an influential and successful professional in the transportation and supply chain industry for more than six years. She plays a key role in the remarketing of used heavy-duty equipment into the marketplace through her extensive knowledge of customer service, banking and outside sales. Manin has a proven record of exceeding forecasts and objectives using consultative and solution-based approaches. In an industry that is predominately led by men, the presence of women is even more sparse in sales-related roles such as Manin’s.
“Just this year, Fleet Advantage experienced its largest remarketing sales year yet, where Ludmila is the only woman on the team,” Francis Maloney, remarketing sales manager at Fleet Advantage, said. “In 2020, she was the top salesperson, selling over $6.3 million dollars in off-lease equipment into the secondary marketplace, playing a direct and instrumental role in the financial integrity of our clients, which ultimately helped boost the global supply chain.”
Manin is passionate about educating the supply chain on remarketing strategies that can save organizations millions of dollars to their bottom line. Especially after a tumultuous past 18 months, she works to help supply chain leaders meet challenges with different remarketing sales tactics that help her customers better understand how to leverage their heavy-duty equipment and fleets. Manin hopes to set an example for women looking to get into the supply chain industry with both her continued leadership and mentorship.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive is a publication covering the entire global supply chain. This year’s list of award recipients includes individuals from software and service providers, consultancies and academia, trucking and transportation firms, professional development agencies and sourcing and procurement divisions.
“These women are just absolutely amazing in so many ways. They’ve re-tooled, re-innovated and revamped how the world sees the supply chain and logistics industry. They’ve paved the way for future female supply chain leaders to become a part of an industry that matters because women in the supply chain matter. And, some of these women are young, which means they’re just getting started,” Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics, said. “I’m honored to recognize and celebrate the achievements of so many female supply chain leaders.”
