With BlueScope Distribution, the sky’s the limit.

Donna Ringrow had one clear aspiration when she joined BlueScope Distribution. To learn as much as possible across all areas of the business and build her career.

Undoubtedly Donna has excelled, with her accession in just three short years from Branch Supervisor at Mount Isa BlueScope Distribution to Branch Manager to her recent well deserved promotion to the State Sales Manager SA/NT.

“My proudest professional achievement at BlueScope Distribution is being successful in my application for the State Sales Manager role,” Donna says “It was a huge step up for me and moving from regional into a metro branch is very different. Being kind to myself and allowing myself to learn and not know everything straight away has helped me transition to the new role.”

Reflecting on her career journey, Donna’s advice to her younger self would be “Believe in yourself, you can do it! The sky’s the limit!”
