Jacksonville Beach, FL (Vocus) June 8, 2010
Genie James, M.M.Sc., Chief Executive Officer of Randolph Medical Enterprises and Executive Director of the Natural Hormone Institute of America has joined the Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO), an international premier peer advisory organization connecting top women entrepreneurs at the million and multimillion-dollar level for greater personal and professional success.
“I believe that becoming a member of WPO will serve as a springboard not only for my professional growth but, also, for the growth and advancement of our unique market niche medical practice and healthcare companies,” says James. “What is most exciting is how WPO will provide me access to intellectual capital and experience of female business entrepreneurs across many traditionally male-dominated professions including healthcare products and service delivery, transportation, technology and manufacturing. It’s my kind of oxygen: Women helping other women create profitable and productive centers of excellence in their respective fields.”
According to Pat Shea, Executive Director of the Nashville YWCA and moderator for the newly-incepted Nashville chapter, “WPO dispels the notion that female-led companies are primarily mom-and-pop operations in retail, cookie-making or crafts. To be eligible to become a member, companies must be privately-owned, women-owned or led and have generated at least $2 million by year-end. It is noteworthy that the average revenue for WPO businesses in 2009 was $13 million. The catalyst of idea-sharing, as well as the potential for business-to-business synergies, is a particularly pragmatic strategy in a somewhat stagnant economy.”
A leading change-agent for natural approaches to improved women’s health, James is currently vested in educating female and male healthcare consumers – as well as their physicians - about the safety and efficacy of bioidentical hormone replacement therapies (BHRT). In addition to authoring two award-winning books, Making Managed Care Work and Winning in the Women’s Health Care Marketplace, James and her husband, C.W. Randolph, Jr., M.D. have co-authored From Belly Fat to Belly Flat, From Hormone Hell to Hormone Well, and newly released In the Mood Again (Simon and Schuster, 2010).
