Carolyn Gable is CEO of New Age Transportation, Distribution & Warehousing Inc. It’s a $30 million a year enterprise in Illinois. Its a far cry from her first long-term job, working as a waitress. When the restaurant closed for renovations Carolyn was spurred to move on. Her new position, as a customer service representative at a freight company led a year later to a job in sales and the beginning of a dream. When the freight industry was deregulated Carolyn took a risk, starting her own freight company at her kitchen table. She developed innovative ways to lower costs, track freight and offer excellent customer service. She credits her years as a waitress for giving her the necessary leadership skills. Her book, Everything I Know as a CEO I Learned as a Waitress, outlines those skills. Carolyn, has received numerous awards for her business achievements, and is the founder of Expect a Miracle foundation, that supports and encourages single mothers.
