It is with tremendous pride that Trailer Bridge announces that our very own Indie Bollman, Vice President of Organizational Development, has been honored with the “2020 Women of Influence” award by the Jacksonville Business Journal.
For the past 17 years, the Jacksonville Business Journal has sought to honor extraordinary women with the Women of Influence award. This award recognizes some of the women whose leadership has helped their companies grow, has shaped the next generation and has provided a model for the community. This honor is well-deserved as Indie has been so critical in helping shape the company culture of Trailer Bridge, who we are and where we are headed beyond 2020.
"A piece of advice I'd offer to the next generation of leaders is to remember that no matter where you are in an organization, you have the power to influence the organization and the people around you.
You don't have to be in charge of the organization, you don't have to own a big foundation. You don't have to be wealthy; you don't have to have any of the things that we often think are needed or how we define influence.
What I would tell them is right where you are right now, you have the power to influence people for good. And it's about them. It's not about you, but you have that ability right now starting today for all women. I think we all have that ability to influence.
I accept this incredible honor for all the women of all positions and all walks of life. The women who show up every day for the people around them. In my book that's the real influence, and we thank you and I accept this honor for you."
Indie Bollman, VP of Organizational Development, Trailer Bridge Inc.
