“Reach for the Stars, and Don’t Lose Focus” - Tere Trujillo, Manager-Global Supply Chain, Miami, USA
After nearly 20 years of experience leading supply chain initiatives in the transportation industry, in 2018 Tere Trujillo came to New Fortress Energy to lead contract and risk management, e-sourcing, cost savings, and supplier relationships. She believes Women’s History Month represents a remarkable milestone honoring women’s achievements.
“It’s important to acknowledge women’s contributions and inspire today’s youth to continue the crusade,” she says. “Women hold half of the world’s potential to make amazing changes. I plan to join with female friends in celebrating our accomplishments and setting new goals. We promote each other’s success and merits."
In addition to honoring women she knows today, Tere commemorates the achievements of women who have made significant achievements in the past.
“I admire aviator Amelia Earhart for her risk tolerance and courage, and Rosa Parks, for her strength, resilience, and conviction in launching the U.S. civil rights movement from the front of a bus,” Tere says. “I also admire Madeleine Albright, the first female U.S. Secretary of State, for her leadership skills, and Malala Yousafzai, a true crusader and inspiration who didn’t allow obstacles to make her lose focus becoming a children’s activist, although she was a child herself. She is the youngest woman to win the Nobel Peace prize, which is an astonishing accomplishment.”
