FORT LAUDERDALE (March 24, 2021) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in fleet data analytics, fleet financing solutions, and lifecycle cost management (LCCM) today announced Ludmila Manin, Remarketing Sales Associate, has been named Top Women to Watch in Transportation by the Women in Trucking Association (WIT).
This award celebrates top performers who go the extra mile to support other women and help to improve gender equality – at their own companies and/or industry-wide. Ludmila believes that education is key to expanding her influence in the transportation industry, particularly for women in a male-dominated field.
Ludmila has been an influential, successful female professional in the transportation industry for over 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. Ludmila serves as one of the few females working in remarketing sales across the entire nation. In an industry that is predominately lead by men, the presence of women is even more sparse in sales-related roles such as Ludmila’s.
Ludmila has achieved several professional accomplishments in the past year that have significantly affected Fleet Advantage’s success. Just this year, Fleet Advantage experienced their largest remarketing sales year yet, where Ludmila is the only woman on the team. In 2020, she was the top salesperson, selling over $6.3 million dollars in off-lease equipment into the secondary marketplace. Ludmila played a direct and instrumental role in the financial integrity of the company and its clients.
"2020 was our largest year to date with over 1,500 off-lease vehicles,” said Francis Maloney, Remarketing Sales Manager at Fleet advantage. “We were in a low valued used truck market and Ludmila and our remarketing sales team has recruited, hired, trained, and implemented a consistent sales and marketing process. Our remarketing sales secured over $38 million with a robust sales pace that required communication, processes, and data input.”
Ludmila exemplifies Women in Trucking’s mission to keep women present and growing in the transportation industry. She serves as a voice for women in sales, a segment that is underserved by women within transportation. Her knowledge and dedication help to set her apart from her male counterparts.
