GS3 Global CEO Lisa Lunsford has been designated as a 2015 Women of Excellence honoree by The Michigan Chronicle.

One of the nation’s most respected African-American newspapers, The Michigan Chronicle is celebrating more than 75 years covering vital news stories for the City of Detroit. For seven years, the Chronicle has recognized the achievements of female leaders in the community, celebrating “local African American women who continue to break the mold and affect change in their professions and community.”

As founder and CEO of GS3 Global, Lisa Lunsford has shepherded the company through a period of phenomenal growth. Although she started the company in an uncertain economy, Lisa believed that GS3 Global would succeed. Her commitment paid off, as today’s GS3 is known as an industry leader in supply chain management, global freight management, assembly, sequencing and manufacturing.

“Being named a Woman of Excellence is a singular honor. I am humbled to join the ranks of women leaders who have contributed so much to our community,” said Lisa Lunsford of GS3 Global. “I am privileged to lead a hard-working creative team and I am proud of what we are building together.”

GS3 Global and Lisa Lunsford were recently featured in the fifth anniversary edition of DRIVEN: A Tribute to African American Achievement in the Auto Industry, unveiled during the North American International Automotive Show. In 2014, GS3 also received a Minority Supplier of the Year Award from the Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council (MMSDC).
