Tracy Brito Denora
Executive Director, New Jersey Warehousemen & Movers Association
Tracy Brito Denora is the Executive Director of the New Jersey Warehousemen & Movers Association (NJWMA). She has been working for the company since 2003 and is now the company’s first Female Executive Director.
Tracy first started working in the trucking industry when she was in high school during the 80s while working for her family’s moving company, Apollo Moving & Storage a North American Van Lines Agent in Newark, New Jersey. After college, Tracy worked as the production manager for a magazine publishing company for ten years. Speaking about her return to the industry, Tracy said, “Moving is what I know best and love, and I enjoy helping New Jersey moving companies in any way I can, whether it’s assisting in their license renewals, tariffs or every day moving issues.”
Tracy’s goal for her work within the industry is to help consumers before hiring a moving company by raising awareness of the dangers of not using licensed public movers because of the risk of moving scams.
When asked what Tracy would tell other women who are interested in joining the trucking industry, she said, “Go for it! Don’t be hesitant by the stigma that this industry is predominately male…simply not true. In the last decade I have seen so many women work their way up to senior management and owners. We have two women on our Board of Directors that own their own moving company. We have created a NJWMA Women Moving Women Group, and the size of our group doubled by our second meeting this past February.”
Speaking about the women of trucking, Tracy said, “I am proud of every woman in this industry; they are fierce!”
