From flight attendant, to co-author of a newspaper column, to CEO of a management consultancy, Judith Rogala has shattered the notion that women are unable to rise through the ranks and achieve business success just as well as men. “Know yourself, believe in yourself and have the courage to act with integrity,” she remarks to a younger generation of women entering the workforce. Over the course of her career, she has achieved tremendous recognition for her impact and successes at the executive level. As the senior vice president of FedEx, she was responsible for operational and facility management of major areas of the organization, which included more than 23,000 employees. After a decade of excellence, she joined the team at Flagship Express as its CEO following the company’s acquisition. In six months, she led the business in restoring profitability through key initiatives that blended elements of recovery negotiations, new business development, new destination landing rights, union decertification and FAA withdrawals of decertification processes. In just two years with Flagship Express, Ms. Rogala made a transformative impact, which created lasting changes for success. Following her tenure with Flagship, she held the roles of CEO and president of The Environmental Quality Group, executive vice president of Office Depot, president of Aramark Uniform Services and CEO of La Petite Academy. With more than 25 years of experience in tow, Ms. Rogala took the leap from CEO to entrepreneur and established The Catapult Factor, a business advisory group, in 2003.
