Every year, NJBIZ names a select group of women in the state to its list of the Best 50 Women in Business.
It's a tough job: Each week, we come across more women who are having a profound impact on business in the state.
So we cast a wide net, pulling nominations from nonprofit organizations, hospitals, accounting firms, real estate corporations, banks and universities.
From that pool of nominees, we select the best 50, in no particular ranking.
The 2014 group includes Dea Benson, of Realogy Holdings Corp.; Debra DiLorenzo, of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey; Caroline Dorsa, of PSEG; Barbara Kauffman, of the Newark Regional Business Partnership; Adrienne Kirby, of Cooper University Health Care; Mary Elizabeth Warner, of Quick Chek Corporation; Carol Ann Short, of the New Jersey Builders Association; Amy Mansue, of Children's Specialized Hospital; and Tracye McDaniel, from Choose NJ.
And that's just to name a few.
Those women will now join a network of previous honorees that counts some of the most powerful women in the state.
"I appreciated being on the list, given the amazing, successful women who represent the N.J. business community," said Sally Glick, a principal of the firm and chief growth strategist at Sobel & Co. in Livingston and a previous Best 50 honoree. "There is a wide range of women in the for-profit and nonprofit markets who have made a significant impact on us all. It is quite an honor to be included with such a prestigious group."
