Trudy Jacobson

Trudy is an incredible businesswoman and entrepreneur who rose from ranks in the trucking industry to founder of one of America’s largest and most successful trucking companies. Some fast facts about Trudy, she: • is the owner of TransAm Trucking, Inc. which brings in annual revenues of nearly $400 million. • purchased a luxury Manhattan apartment overlooking Central Park. • is a philanthropist and strong supporter of the first responder and military community. • knows how to drive and park an 18- wheeler big rig. • wants American women everywhere to reach their full potential.

Her goals have now shifted toward mentoring, inspiring and encouraging American women everywhere to live out their dreams and become the huge success they were meant to become, as she had.

“I’m at a place in life where I want to share the successes of women whom I admire. I’m so grateful for my opportunities along the way and want to pay it forward. I feel inspired to sponsor the Great American Women series because there are women who deserve to be recognized for what they’ve accomplished in life, sometimes out of necessity, sometimes out of ambition, sometimes out of creativity, that spirit of entrepreneurship.” – Trudy Jacobson
