PAIGE MOSHER, Project Manager
Born and raised in South Texas, Paige Mosher and her family traded the warm gulf breezes to Northwest Indiana in November 2002, lake-effect snow and all.
Paige, as well as her entire family, was in the maritime industry in the administration of the largest liquid tank barge carrier in the country for chemicals, oils, and gasoline on the inland water system from Brownsville, TX to Chicago, IL. After moving to NWI, she worked at Bethlehem Steel for a start-up contractor, implementing advanced technology for scarfing slabs. Bethlehem Steel was then acquired by ISG and has since become ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest steel manufacturer.
After 5 years, she pursued additional challenges and began working for a stevedore operation at the Illinois International Port District on the Calumet River in South Chicago. She actively participated in the development of a true multi-modal terminal for North America Distribution to end users. She managed client accounts, cargo movements, and shipments of various products such as steel products, iron ore, alloys, bulk products, and lumber. Given her background, Paige shows excellent customer service and follow through.
Paige has extensive administrative and operational knowledge, lean manufacturing implementation/training and achieving/maintaining ISO certifications. She’s now bringing her talents and expertise to Success Trek.
Paige and her husband Steve have 3 children, 2 grandchildren and one more on the way. They also have 2 dogs that keep her busy. Paige enjoys spending time with her family (including the furry ones.) She also enjoys shopping and traveling. Her favorite quote reads, “If you want to bring happiness to the whole world… go home and love your family,” by Mother Theresa.
