Inaugural ranking honors women who influence change, innovation and standards of excellence
CEO Connection recognizes the top 25 women in the U.S. on its list of the 2015 Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market. The organization selected honorees based on their ability to influence change, innovation, and standards for excellence in companies with annual sales between $100 million and $3 billion.
A results-oriented strategist with 30 years of professional services experience, Julie Howard, Navigant’s Chairman and CEO, is at the helm of the Firm's approach to growth. She leads a network of more than 5,000 employees and offices in 50+ cities in North America, Europe, Middle East and Asia.
Recently named a “Woman of Achievement” by the Anti-Defamation League, Julie also champions women’s leadership development for both clients and employees. She was also recognized by Consulting Magazine in 2014 with the Lifetime Achievement Award for her professional services leadership and accomplishments.
"We are honored to be able to recognize such a prestigious group of women who have truly made an impact on their company and have given back to their community," says Kenneth Beck, CEO of CEO Connection. "We have been recognizing CEOs through our Mid-Market 500 and Mid-Market 1000 lists and saw a need to recognize an underrepresented group within the mid-market, so we started the Most Influential Women's list."
Julie Howard joins the ranks of top female leaders, who were evaluated by six metrics: Sphere of Influence, Annual Revenue, Social Influence, Search Influence, Impact, and Community Involvement. The women will be recognized at the 2015 Mid-Market Convention on October 18-21 at The Wharton School in Philadelphia, PA.
