Los Angeles (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Lindsey Carnett was named a Finalist in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year—Business Products—11 to 2,500 Employees category in the 9th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word “crowned,” Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 9. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend.
More than 1,200 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Communications Campaign of the Year. Carnett is a Finalist in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year category.
In 2009, Carnett took a leap of faith as an entrepreneur and started Marketing Maven Public Relations in the midst of a recession. Now recognized in the Forbes Most Powerful Woman Business Leader issue, Carnett has led her employees and her company to multiple top ten rankings as the largest advertising and public relations agency in the Greater Los Angeles area as ranked by The San Fernando Valley Business Journal among others. Driven by her charisma and passion to lead a successful business, Carnett embodies her Top Woman in Business recognition by the Pacific Coast Business Times as she brings in new clients in hospitality and gaming, healthcare, entertainment and more.
“There is none other more qualified than Lindsey,” said Phil Rarick, VP of Sales and Operations for Marketing Maven Public Relations. “Her desire to successfully lead her company while helping her employees grow professionally are true characteristics of a motivated female entrepreneur. We are excited for Lindsey and her finalist standing for a Stevie Award for Woman in Business, as Female Entrepreneur of the Year.”
Finalists were chosen by more than 130 business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging. More than 90 members of the five final judging committees will determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging.
“We’re very excited about this year’s Finalists in the Stevie Awards for Women in Business,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. “The judges have told me that they think this is the best and most inspiring crop of nominees we’ve ever had. We look forward to seeing the judges’ final decisions.”
“This is such a great opportunity and I am thrilled to be named a finalist for the Female Entrepreneur of the Year award,” said Carnett. “I am excited to be standing among other inspiring women and hear their stories of success and triumph.”
