Women to Watch are business owners, CEOs, presidents and top executives who have a proven track record of success and who are trailblazers and mentors.
On Thursday, Sept. 15, Mainebiz honored its 2011 Women to Watch at a reception at the Holiday Inn By the Bay in Portland. More than 200 people turned out to celebrate this year's five honorees: Louise Jonaitis of Saunders Bros. at Locke Mills, Colleen Hilton of VNA Home Health & Hospice, Beth Shissler of Sea Bags, Patricia Quinn of the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority and Danielle Ripich of the University of New England.
Women to Watch is a program designed to recognize the achievement among the fastest-growing segment of Maine business owners - women. If you have someone you would like to submit a nomination for, watch this page as nomination information will be posted in early April.
Women who are chosen for this honor will also be featured in the August 6 issue of Mainebiz.
