Ontario Systems announced Jill Lehman, Vice President Administration and Chief People Officer, was named a finalist in the Executive of the Year category in the 10th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program. Award winners will be announced during a gala event in New York on Friday, November 8.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
More than 1,200 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Communications Campaign of the Year.
“I’m honored to represent the Indiana business community, Ontario Systems and the field of human resources which is represented by many outstanding females leading organizations and communities,” said Lehman. “My goal is to encourage women to be courageous, be confident, show gratitude and dream big.”
Finalists were chosen by more than 140 business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging. More than 90 members of the five final judging committees will determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the finalists during final judging.
“For 10 years we have been recognizing the achievements of women in business, and this year’s nominations were the most impressive class the judges have ever reviewed,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. “We look forward to seeing the final judges’ decisions and honoring this year’s Stevie winners in New York next month.”
