Lynden, WA - - January 19, 2017 - - James Obermayer of The Sales Lead Management Association (SLMA) announced that the 8000 member organization is accepting nominations for this year’s “20 Women to Watch in Business” recognition program. Nominations, accepted until midnight on Monday, February 28, 2017, are for women working in all areas of management for business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) companies. Nominations are encouraged for c-level executives and women in sales and marketing management.
The SLMA also asks for nominations from vendor companies such as marketing automation software, digital lead generation, direct marketing agencies, traditional branding agencies, enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management software, telemarketing and database companies, and sales lead management firms. This is the seventh year for SLMA’s recognition program.
SLMA members (membership is free) and non-members are encouraged to nominate women leaders. From the nominations, twenty will be selected as the “SLMA 20 Women to Watch in Business 2017.” Winners, chosen by a panel of independent judges, will be announced on Friday, April 3, 2017 at 8 a.m. PST.
Author, podcaster and partner at The Pedowitz Group, Debbie Qaqish said, “Today’s successful women marketing leaders are making a measurable revenue impact on their organizations. They have earned their seat at the executive table and are role models for the next generation. Organizations like SLMA that recognize the value these women bring are beacons of light, encouraging women to own their power and lead the global workforce of the future.”
Liz Sophia, three-time winner of the “20 Women to Watch” said, “Kudos to the SLMA for doing such a phenomenal job showcasing female leaders in sales lead management. Being named a Top 20 Woman to Watch was an incredible honor. I am deeply humbled to be recognized in the same category with these amazingly talented women.”
Nominees are judged on their contributions as leaders in B2B and B2C companies. Qualifications, such as book and article authorship, board positions, and speaking on behalf of the subjects of sales lead management, marketing management and ROI, and sales management are taken into account. This program is not a popularity contest, it is a judged event.
Nominations for the “20 Women to Watch in Business 2017” are being accepted here.
