Leading Women Entrepreneurs (LWE) has announced its 2019 Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs, Intrapreneurs, and Brand Builders and selected Stacy Gilbert as a “Top 25 Leading Woman Intrapreneur” for 2019.
Stacy Gilbert is an audit and tax partner at Citrin Cooperman, with over 30 years of expertise providing tax, accounting, business, and forensic valuation services. Stacy is one of the founding members of the firm's Women's Initiatives Committee and the first woman to be voted to the firm's Executive Committee.
The Top 25 Leading Women were selected out of hundreds of impressive nominations based on their strong business acumen and ability to both influence and inspire within their respective industries. Says Linda Wellbrock, founder of Leading Women Entrepreneurs, “The women we recognize are amazing role models for women in entrepreneurship and business everywhere. Their tremendous accomplishments are representative of the increasing impact women are making in the world of business. Every year, we continue to be blown away by how many successful women are nominated for the Top 25.”
“I am truly grateful for this recognition, “said Gilbert, who has a long history of ascending to positions of leadership and building a successful career in a mostly male-dominated industry. “When I first entered this profession, I realized I would have to create my own opportunities so I became laser focused on breaking through and becoming as respected as my male counterparts. Once I felt I accomplished this, I became equally dedicated to creating opportunities for other women to be successful. It’s very meaningful to see those efforts recognized.”
The success of these extremely successful business women will be recognized on October 21st at The Liberty in Jersey City, NJ. These recognition events are a part of the Leading Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners Initiative, an honor open to women who have, through their hard work and resulting success, helped make significant strides in advancing our economy.
