Women In Trucking Association announces the continued support of BMO Transportation Finance as Gold Level Partner

March 7, 2016

The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) is pleased to announce the renewed Gold Level Partnership with BMO Transportation Finance. John Dietze, Senior Vice President of Dealer Sales currently serves on the board of directors and has recently been appointed to serve as a director on the WIT Foundation.

The Women In Trucking Association is an organization whose mission is to increase the percentage of women employed in the trucking industry. “Part of our mission is to address obstacles that women might face in their transportation career,” said WIT President/CEO Ellen Voie. “Financing one truck or a fleet can be a challenge, and BMO Transportation Finance can help our members successfully negotiate the funds they need.”

Dietze is the Dealer Sales Leader for the Transportation Finance group within BMO Transportation Finance, which serves all aspects of the U.S. transportation industry including manufacturer, dealer, and end user with a product offering that includes wholesale, retail, and leasing. John began his career with The Associates in 1985 (acquired by Citigroup in 2000) and held a number of positions within the business including operations, risk, and sales prior to moving into his current senior management position in September of 2011.

“Diversity is one of our core corporate values, and those values help us pursue our vision: to be the bank that defines great customer experience,” said Dietze. “I’m proud to continue as a board member and look forward to working with Ellen and my fellow board members to further WIT’s purpose.”

“Over the past year, John’s expertise and insight has help WIT address challenges and brought our organization to the forefront as an industry resource,” Voie said. “In addition to his role as a director on the Women In Trucking Association board, he has recently been appointed to the Women In Trucking Scholarship Foundation board of directors as well.”

In 2015 WIT held its first Accelerate! Conference & Expo, the industry’s foremost event to focus on women in the trucking industry. This year’s conference is scheduled for November 6-9 in Dallas, Texas.
