It is our greatest pleasure to name, Ashley Leto, as Employee of the Month for August. Ashley has grown with the company over the last nine years, being part of what makes GlobalTranz a thriving Arizona corporation and a family business. As Senior A/P Support, she takes pride in her work and continues to challenge herself, helping Truckload continue to prosper. She is also heavily involved in A/P Document Imaging.
Ashley is an Arizona native and received her Associates degree from the University of Phoenix in psychology. She originally worked for her father’s logistics company along side her brothers, Andrew and Michael, until starting at GlobalTranz in 2006. What makes her successful at her job is the ability to stay positive because “everyone has bad days but you buckle up, smile, and keep truckin’!” She also believes that “…having good managers that build you up will make anyone successful, and that I have.” Ashley takes joy in being able to see her family everyday and her team when she comes to work. One of her favorite moments at GlobalTranz was watching a person dressed in a chicken costume sing “Happy Birthday” to her brother, Andrew Leto.
When Ashley is away from work, she values spending quality time with her son and family. She enjoys playing pool and fuels her love for music by attending concerts. Ashley also carves out time to volunteer at non-kill animal shelters because she has a heart and passion for animals.
When asked what she’d like to share with GlobalTranz, she stated firmly;
“Before I do anything I ask myself ‘would an idiot do that?’ And if the answer is yes, I do not do that thing.” –Dwight Schrute “The Office”
“Ashley has worked in many different departments during her career with GlobalTranz, but she truly excels in her current role. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her dedication and hard work has had a great impact to the organization.” –Marty Sinicrope
“Ashley Leto stepped up in a big way when our new software for Accounts Payable fell behind. She helped with the testing of software, training of co-workers, and stayed late when needed. I don’t know what I would have done without her.” –James Erway
