This annual celebration of the industry's thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and change-makers will take place on Sunday, Feb. 20, 2022, in New York City.

"USPAGL is committed to empowering women on and off the field, so we are thrilled to have two of our female leaders as finalists for these prestigious awards," said J. Michael Prince, President and CEO of USPAGL.

Molly Robbins, Vice President of Global Licensing, is a finalist for the Deal Maker Award. This award recognizes an individual for her vision and skills in structuring deals and negotiating agreements and making a significant contribution by forming powerful collaborations that impacted the bottom line.

"As a retail veteran, Molly has played an integral role in growing our business over the past six years," Prince said. "Molly is also bold in seeking resolutions to challenges regardless of their complexity, which results in strong, productive relationships with our partners across 194 countries."

Another one of the company's female leaders, Stacey Kovalsky, Senior Director of Global Communications for USPAGL, is a finalist for the Storyteller Award, which recognizes excellence in storytelling, including creativity, originality, and long-lasting iconic value. As a communications veteran with more than 25 years of experience, Kovalsky has created a personal mantra that listening first is the key to achieving authenticity in storytelling.

"Whether it's announcing key business and sport partnerships, fashion trends and global sponsorships, or sharing leadership communications, growth strategy, and sustainability initiatives with partner licensees, it all begins with Stacey's imaginative writing style and outstanding ability for storytelling," said Prince. "In fact, it's Stacey's diverse skill set that helps drive USPAGL's messaging and support the company's overarching goals."
