2017 Most Influential Women in the Mid-Market


Designed to bring awareness to an underrepresented group within the mid-market, CEO Connection launched its newest Mid-Market ranking─ Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market. This list recognizes the women who are influencing change, innovation, and standards for excellence within mid-market companies (with revenue between $100 million and $3 billion).

Honorees are evaluated by Annual Revenue, Number of Employees, First Impression on Social Media and Community Involvement.

The Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market will be recognized at the CEO Connection Mid-Market Convention held in conjunction with the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania on September 24-27, 2017.
