The CEO Connection® Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market List recognizes women who have the power to influence change, innovation and standards for excellence in U.S.-based companies with annual sales between $100 million and $3 billion. The selection criteria are based on sales and number of employees as well as community involvement.

“I am very humbled and honored to be recognized for the third year,” McReynolds said. “At ArcBest, I work with a great team of employees who work hard every day to provide a great customer experience and create solutions to even the most complex supply chain challenges.”

McReynolds has more than 27 years of experience in the logistics and transportation industry, including 20 years at ArcBest. Building upon ABF Freight’s 94-year-old roots, she has diversified ArcBest into a full-service logistics provider through the addition of asset-light solutions. In 2017, the company implemented a corporate restructure to offer most services under the ArcBest brand. The realignment focused on enhancing the customer experience and simplifying access to a broad suite of logistics solutions.

McReynolds also serves on numerous outside boards including OGE Energy Corp., First Bank Corp., First National Bank of Fort Smith, and the Transportation Industry Council of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. She serves on the Dean’s Executive Advisory Board of the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, and is chair of the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith Foundation Board.
