“Ann was the one [who] set us up to make data security an integral part of what we do. When she started talking about it years ago, no one thought it was a big deal,” said Valero’s Phil Schwartz in the article. “But look at it now. Our industry is ahead of the curve and it’s because of Ann.”

Ann Dozier worked with Coca-Cola for much of her Conexxus involvement, reported the article. She was an early proponent of standards and supply chain excellence.

“When I started with Conexxus, I thought about what I could get done, then I thought about how I could influence others, then about how I could teach others, and now I think about the legacy I can leave,” shared Dozier when she accepted the award.
