What her company does: Provides marine cargo logistics services

What you can learn from her: Logistec operates in a volume business, with huge quantities of goods passing through its network of marine terminals. But when bulk cargo traffic dropped in 2015, Paquin’s leadership on business diversification paid off: Logistec’s break bulk service, devoted to splitting up cargo, grew. As a result, Logistec has been able to stay profitable every quarter.
