We would like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to Dawn Turner, American Asphalt Company’s Director of Purchasing & Dispatch. In a “male-dominated” industry, American Asphalt has created a culture where women can not only work in the asphalt business but also thrive in this arena. Dawn has been a member of the American Asphalt family since 2003. She started her career here in the mechanic shop and was subsequently promoted to Construction Department Manager. In 2018 she advanced even further to her current position, Director of Purchasing & Dispatch. Thank you to the Woman of Asphalt Magazine for recognizing what a valuable asset Dawn is to our company, as well as for acknowledging the many women who have succeeded in this industry and defied the standards of yesterday’s society. American Asphalt is proud to have Dawn as an integral part of our team and honored to support women working the construction industry.
