Lebanon, NJ, October 20, 2016 (Newswire.com) - The Best and Brightest of 2016 Leading Women Entrepreneurs Names Anne Thornton of MSI Plumbing & Remodeling, a Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneur in New Jersey.
Hundreds of nominations were received from women entrepreneurs who are all accomplished, intelligent and inspired by their work; these trend-setting women make a difference in their companies, industries and communities. Their contributions have given rise to the creation of the Leading Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners Initiative, an honor which was open to the women of our state who have been keeping the small business economic engine alive and well in New Jersey.
"I am so proud to have been chosen one of the Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs! To be included in such an amazing group of women is an inspiration. New Jersey has a rich heritage of producing incredible women entrepreneurs and being a part of this year's Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs is a real honor," says Anne Thornton, President, MSI Plumbing & Remodeling.
The 2016 finalists who were selected are women who support numerous non-profits, are employing thousands, generating billions and represent a variety of industries. The impact they have for our state and local communities is amazing. "We are very excited about the 2016 initiative in partnership with New Jersey Monthly Magazine that honors women business owners because women are the forerunners to the economic recovery of our state. Over the last twenty years, women have surpassed men at twice the rate for starting their own companies. Our joint project presents phenomenal exposure for their efforts and the issue that finalists are listed in will reach over 750,000 households," states Linda Wellbrock, Founder of Leading Women Entrepreneurs.
After analyzing hundreds of entries, an independent committee selected the initial finalists for phase one of the competition who were judged in four areas: Market Potential, Innovation, Advocacy for Women and Community Involvement. Finalists are then automatically submitted for phase two of the competition. This list will be further analyzed by the Advisory Board to assist in selecting the Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs who will be recognized on November 14, 2016 at the Liberty House in Jersey City, NJ at a cocktail reception. Leading Women Entrepreneurs is a media and events company that recognizes outstanding women business owners. The mission is to create a sustainable, ongoing environment that brings leaders together and showcases their attributes and contributions.
