Wendy B. McDonald Award

Wendy B. McDonald was one of the power transmission/motion control industry’s true pioneers. Known as “Mrs. Mac,” she served over 60 years as a leader in her family-owned international industrial distribution company and former PTDA member, BC Bearings Engineers Limited (acquired by Motion Industries, Inc.). Mrs. McDonald left many legacies through her long career in the industry as a trailblazing woman business owner. Her charm and grace were legendary but so were her philanthropy and commitment to give back to the industry and the communities that led to her success.
In honor of Mrs. McDonald, the PTDA Foundation established the Wendy B. McDonald Award. Presented annually (at the discretion of the PTDA Foundation Board of Trustees) during the PTDA Industry Summit, the award recognizes a woman who has established herself as a critical contributor to her company’s success and has affected positive change on the power transmission/motion control industry.
