Mountain View, Calif. (Vocus) November 3, 2010
Amazon Consulting, a leading partnering services firm dedicated to helping companies elevate the impact of partnering, today announced that Founder and CEO Diane Krakora has been named as a finalist in the Stevie Awards for Women in Business. The Stevie Awards for Women in Business have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards, honoring women executives, entrepreneurs, and the companies they run worldwide.
Diane Krakora founded Amazon Consulting in 1998 with a vision to fill the gap for sound channel research, counsel, creative models and program development to elevate the impact of partnering. For 20 years, she has helped hundreds of leading companies including Dell, Cisco, HP, Intel, Oracle, and VMware reach their partnering potential. Since 2004, Diane played a key role with Girls For A Change, a non-profit that empowers low-income girls to create social change in their communities. She holds a Master's degree in Business Administration from Santa Clara University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Quantitative Economics from UCSD.
“This is a very big honor to be placed among the top women in business,” said Ms. Krakora. “I am humbled by the recognition.”

“It was harder than ever to be recognized in the Stevie Awards for Women in Business this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards. “Receiving a high score from the judges this year illustrates how well many women in business are doing despite the stiff challenges they face.”
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word “crowned,” winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis hotel in New York on Friday, November 12. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend. The presentations will be broadcast live on radio in the U.S.A. by the Business TalkRadio Network.
