Garden City, NY (PRWEB) August 11, 2015
The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Helen Brown as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in the oil and gas industry. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 700,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to welcome Helen into this important group of women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her perseverance, work ethic and leadership qualities are an inspiration to all women.”
What sets Helen Brown apart as a leading consultant is her outstanding depth of knowledge of the oil and gas service industry although she did not originally start her career in the business. She worked for five years as an Assistant in Mental Health Clinics, and also has a background in banking and business ownership. But after 30 years of “living and breathing oil and gas” through the work of her stepfather and husband, Ms. Brown felt it was her time to transition into the business.
In 2004, she and her husband, Mitchell, founded MLB Consulting LLC, now a leader in the oil and gas industry. Through the years, Ms. Brown’s responsibilities have changed from managing the books and handling insurance and administrative tasks, to now, as Vice President of the company, spending most of her time in meetings and overseeing the business as a whole.
“Anyone who owns a company knows that you have to wear many hats to be successful,” she said. Although it can be challenging to keep up with industry changes, Ms. Brown always stays on top of the trends. She is grateful for the loyalty and hard work of her staff and for the company’s success. “My future goal is to see MLB Consulting expand in other areas as well as other countries and to maintain our current operations,” she said.
NAPW’s mission is to provide an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
