Women at the Wheel: Lindsay Fleege

Women at the Wheel: Lindsay Fleege

Fleege is the manager of sales training at Valvoline Global Operations.

During the month of June, aftermarketNews will be presenting the esteemed 2024 Class of AMN’s Women at the Wheel. From trailblazers who have helped create departments and even entire companies, to those who ensure their office runs like a well-oiled machine, this year’s group of 26 is full of authentic leaders, each with a story to tell.

Mentorship and programming have united women throughout the aftermarket, serving as a springboard for them to enter the industry and grow their roles into successful careers. They are sparking change and driving results, together.

Today’s honoree is Lindsay Fleege, manager of sales training at Valvoline Global Operations.

How your aftermarket career began: After graduating from Miami University, I worked as a middle school teacher before moving into a sales and sales training role for a national logistics organization. I was contacted by a Valvoline recruiter. Though I knew nothing about oil and am far from a “gearhead,” I have loved the seven years I have spent in the industry. I can honestly say that every challenge, new product, and innovation excites me. 

Proudest career accomplishment: I am incredibly honored to have been nominated and selected as the recipient of Valvoline Global Operations’ first-ever “Living Our Values” Award. Being recognized for the ways I demonstrate our global values around care, integrity, passion, excellence and unity is an extraordinarily humbling experience, and being recognized on a global stage in front of my colleagues around the world is an experience I will never forget. 

Best advice to other women in the aftermarket: You must remember that you have a seat at the table… I encourage you to set aside any fear or intimidation you may feel in those situations and speak up when you have something to say. 

In tomorrow’s edition of aftermarketNews, we’ll feature Sarah Fletcher, district manager at Parts Authority.
