Liliya Skikun is the founder and president of Great Lakes Trucking MI. Skikun started the company 10 years ago with a vision in mind to competitively haul automotive parts out of the Detroit area. Since Great Lakes Trucking MI is a woman-owned company, Skikun strives to give young women an opportunity to prove themselves within the trucking industry. This has proved itself to be a good fit for the company. Skikun has grown her company into five different corporations. She works hard at balancing a family and her businesses, and she is an exceptional example not only for young women but for people of every gender and nationality of what success in America can be. She says all you have to do is whatever it takes to succeed. She passionately believes that success comes from being gracious and helpful, by giving and taking opportunities when they present themselves.
