Chicago, Ill. – The PTDA Foundation’s Wendy B. McDonald Award recognizes a woman who has established herself as a critical contributor to her company’s success and has affected positive change within the power transmission/motion control industry. The PTDA Foundation established the award in 2014 to honour the memory of Wendy B. McDonald, one of the power transmission/motion control industry’s true pioneers.

A trailblazing woman business owner, Mrs. McDonald left many legacies through her long career in the industry.
