Penske VP of Sales Systems and Analytics Named Top Woman to Watch in Transportation

Sue Maier, vice president of sales systems and analytics for Penske Truck Leasing, has been named to the Women in Trucking Association’s (WIT) 2024 list of Top Women to Watch in Transportation. This prestigious list recognizes top performers who go the extra mile to advance gender diversity in transportation.

“I’m thrilled to accept this recognition alongside so many outstanding women in transportation,” said Maier. “I’d like to thank the talented and diverse team at Penske, who shares my passion for collaboration, mentorship and continuous improvement.”

Maier assumed the brand-new role of vice president of sales systems and analytics in May 2022, and has since built a robust, cross-disciplinary team that has transformed the systems and processes underpinning Penske’s lease sales experience. Maier’s portfolio includes oversight of Penske’s customer relationship management software and management of Penske’s unique specification and rating system, sales support teams, and sales reporting.

Maier is proud to lead a highly visible, predominantly female team in a vertical that straddles sales and information technology, two historically male disciplines. She has also demonstrated a deep commitment to mentorship by co-founding a highly successful sales mentorship program, which in its pilot year matched 37 diverse associates (including 24 women) with 18 sales leaders.

Each year, the Top Women to Watch list is selected by the editorial staff of Redefining the Road, WIT’s official magazine. It has previously featured Christiane Meyer, director of strategic accounts for Penske Logistics; Angela Tracy, vice president of sales for Penske Truck Leasing; Chavela Brown, area vice president for Penske Truck Leasing, and Amy Ilyes, vice president of logistics engineering for Penske Logistics.

A longstanding partner of WIT, Penske has been honored as a Top Company for Women in Transportation for the past five consecutive years.
