Charlotte, North Carolina (PRWEB) September 01, 2016
In-Flight Crew Connections announced today that its CEO, Jennifer Guthrie, has been named a 2016 Brava Award winner by Charlotte SmartCEO based on her leadership skills and community involvement.
The Brava Awards celebrate the distinguished achievements of 40 high-impact business leaders in Greater Charlotte. Brava award winners combine their irrepressible entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for giving back to the community, and are exemplary leaders of both their companies and their communities. The inaugural class collectively generates more than $24.69 billion in annual revenue and employs more than 53,800 individuals. The winners will be profiled in Charlotte SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony on September 13, 2016 at The Fillmore Charlotte.
“Brava winners possess the hallmark qualities of successful leaders — vision, passion, compassion, dedication, and perseverance. Each winner in this inaugural class exhibits these qualities in all facets of her life, from running her business to tending to her family and donating time and resources to philanthropic initiatives,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, president of SmartCEO. “We are honored to recognize a group of Charlotte women who are truly making a difference in the world.”
Jennifer Guthrie founded In-Flight Crew Connections in 2002 and since the company's inception, has led the company with exponential year-over-year growth. In recognition of her leadership and success, she has received numerous industry awards, including Gold Stevie Award for Women in Business, NAWBO® Business Leader of the Year Award, Charlotte Business Journal's Top 25 Women in Business, and was featured on CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley.
"I am honored to be recognized with such a powerful group of women who drive the success of their businesses and give back to their communities," says Jennifer Guthrie. "This is an exceptional group of dedicated women who are leaders and mentors, and devote their time and expertise to make a difference."
Jennifer's philanthropic focus extends beyond the company's participation in various local non-profit programs. She and her family travel to Africa with Care for Aids, a team dedicated to helping men and women with HIV and AIDS live longer, healthier lives. Care for AIDS, in partnership with churches in Africa, provides access to medication and offers a range of programs to help and educate people with the illness. Jennifer travels to Kenya to help train parents on how to start their own business. "I am dedicated to helping change the face of AIDS and renew the future of the next generation in Africa," Guthrie says. "I'm especially passionate about causes related to women and children."
