Thirty-four women will be honored this year by the Tampa Bay Business Journal for the BusinessWoman of the Year Awards.
Close to 500 nominations were received this year for the awards. Each year the competition gets tougher as our region’s population and business community grows and engagement within the community continues to strengthen.
The chosen honorees demonstrate business success, community involvement, leadership ability and influence on the region, public policy or quality of life. Their industries include everything from health care and banking to tech and innovation.
“The Tampa Bay Business Journal for decades has been honoring businesswomen and their important influence on the region,” said Publisher and Market President Ian Anderson. “We look forward to celebrating these chosen 34 women in March and spotlighting their achievements.”
Of the 34 honorees, two businesswomen have been selected for the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Angie Joseph Excellence in Mentoring Award.
