Top CEOs

 

 

Women in Business continues the dynamic tradition of recognizing the Top Female CEOs who are the area’s biggest and brightest movers and shakers in the business world. These are the women who are setting examples, either by rising to the top in established organizations or starting their own successful business. These women are influencing our region for the better, both in their dedication to their careers and their devotion to their communities. From fields like healthcare and education, to male-dominated industries like construction and manufacturing, these women are setting the mark, providing the leadership for central Pennsylvania to emerge from the pandemic even more prosperous. We were amazed at the varied and impressive accomplishments of these women. They are not only improving the bottom line of their companies, they are making central Pennsylvania a better place to live and providing an example to a rising generation. They are, in our own community, the visible embodiment of the rallying cry, “If you can see her, you can be her,” enabling young women to aspire and realize their ambitions. Women in Business is proud to recognize their achievements and to bring you their stories.
