My biggest strength is that I can see and embrace change. I know how to adjust quickly and I created my company so I can do just that.

NAPW honors Cara Scharf as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. Ms. Scharf is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in advertising and communications. As the largest, most-recognized networking organization of professional women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 300 Local Chapters.

“My biggest strength is that I can see and embrace change. I know how to adjust quickly and I created my company so I can do just that,” says Ms. Scharf, Founder of Fearless Media.

Ms. Scharf first became fascinated by the world of advertising as a young girl, when she would visit the office of television producer Sandy Frank, a client of her father’s. She never forgot the excitement of the media world, and eventually pursued a career in advertising.

Today, Ms. Scharf boasts more than 25 years of advertising agency experience. In 2009, she made the "fearless" move to entrepreneurship when she founded Fearless Media, a New York City agency that creates innovative, integrated engagement advertising. As founder, Ms. Scharf is responsible for running the day-to-day operations of the business, managing clients and driving her team to always be thinking strategically.

From conception through inception, Ms. Scharf skillfully handles every detail of each project, never hesitating to think outside of the box. Seeing her ideas come to fruition results in success for her clients, which is the ultimate reward, says Ms. Scharf. “I look forward to turning my company into a full-service ad agency while still maintaining the ability to stay hands-on," she says. "It is an amazing feeling to be able to have a vision and see it come to life within my own company, even on the rough days!”
