In its third year, the Women in Supply Chain award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network.
“Marlo and Anna have demonstrated remarkable leadership through one of the most challenging periods in the automotive industry, working tirelessly to keep our pipelines full so our plants can keep running while supporting our transformation to become a sustainable mobility tech company,” said Mark Stewart, Stellantis North America COO. “We know that their contributions are invaluable, so we couldn’t be prouder that their efforts are also being recognized outside the company.”

Vitous has a Bachelor of Science in business administration from Central Michigan University and a Master of Business Administration from Wayne State University.
Markett was appointed to her current position in August 2022. In this role, she is responsible for instilling and executing the company’s Dare Forward 2030 plan, including long-range planning, demand planning, production planning, order to delivery, supplier capacity, inbound/outbound logistics, and the consistent flow of parts into the company’s 35 plants in North America. She has been with the company for 22 years, working her way up through leadership roles in both supply chain and manufacturing, including being named vice president of North America supply in 2021.
