The PTDA Foundation’s Wendy B. McDonald Award recognizes a woman who has established herself as a critical contributor to her company’s success and has affected positive change within the power transmission/motion control industry. The PTDA Foundation established the award in 2014 to honor the memory of Wendy B. McDonald, one of the power transmission/motion control industry’s true pioneers.
A trailblazing woman business owner, Mrs. McDonald left many legacies through her long career in the industry. Her charm and grace are legendary as well as her philanthropy and commitment to give back to the industry and the communities that led to her success. The 2016 recipient of the award was Linda Miller of B&D Industrial. Previous recipients include Elizabeth (Liz) Moon of Kaman Industrial Technologies Corporation and Pat Wheeler of Motion Industries (Canada).
