Recognized for outstanding contributions as a workplace mentor and community volunteer.
April 9, 2020, Durham, N.C., – TransLoc Organizational Development Manager, Suzan Wasik, was recognized with a “Women in Business Award” from the Triangle Business Journal, a leading provider of business news for North Carolina’s Triangle area.
The Women in Business Awards recognize outstanding women leaders in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area with significant accomplishments in business and community service. Recipients represent the best in professional accomplishment, leadership, and development.
“Suzan is a critically important part of our organization. She enriches the careers of our team members with her extensive development background, ongoing refinement of internal resources, and leadership coaching,” said TransLoc VP of Integration Kelly Rees. “Suzan’s contributions to our organization are highly valued, but we know she is an active member of the community as well. We are proud to have Suzan on our team.”
As a strategic partner to company leaders and a change agent for the entire organization, Suzan engages cross-functional teams to work more collaboratively and with greater intention, agility, engagement, and impact. Through her highly-developed leadership skills, Suzan garners company-wide buy-in which has resulted in reducing attrition and creating a positive employee culture. Additionally, she has been instrumental in integrating the operations of TransLoc, Ride Systems, and DoubleMap – three previously separate entities – aligning leaders across the organization, and ushering in a newly combined company mission, vision, and set of goals.
Suzan’s dedication to helping people extends beyond her professional work. An avid supporter of multiple educational organizations, Suzan serves as a volunteer for Peruvian Hearts, a group that works to break the cycle of poverty and gender inequality by educating young women and creating community leaders in Peru. The organization builds (figurative) bridges and networks of connections that help girls get through high school and college. As part of her commitment to the organization, Suzan, along with her three kids, spent a summer working in orphanages in the Sacred Valley and with college students in Cusco. She called the experience “life changing.”
Recipients of this year’s Women in Business Awards will be recognized at an awards luncheon on August 7, 2020.
