ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Two women were acknowledged for their lasting contributions to the industry.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Anne Seki and Ann Dozier were inducted into the Conexxus Technology Hall of Fame at the recent Conexxus Annual Conference, according to Nacsonline.com.

The hall of fame “honors individuals who have distinguished themselves by improving the profitability of the industry through advancement of technology and technology standards,” noted the article. The two women were involved with the industry throughout the past 20 years.

Seki was honored posthumously, stated the article. Ron Hilmes of Chevron accepted the award on her behalf. Seki created Connexus’ Data Security committee.

“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.
