2013 Women to Watch honorees

Here it is, our fifth year of Women to Watch, the annual issue where we shine a spotlight on exceptional female executives.

The genesis of Women to Watch was in early 2009, when the Mainebiz editorial staff hung all the covers of the previous year's issues on a wall and realized we were looking at a lot of male faces. This occurred at the same time we were writing stories about the rise of women in business based on U.S. Small Business Administration reports and American Express' annual "State of Woman-owned Business Report."

Hmmm, where were these women in Maine? We decided to find out.

This year we received dozens and dozens of Women to Watch nominations. From those, we culled and then vetted the best — truly outstanding executives who manage their companies and organizations with courage, smarts and vision. The five women we present in this issue develop and deliver products as diverse as aerial maps, health care, digital media and dollars — big dollars. (And one actually delivers babies.) They all mitigate short-term obstacles, then motivate and manage their teams toward long-term accomplishments.

We are inspired by their stories. You will be, too.
