She Runs It (FKA Advertising Women Of New York) has named its Women of the Year slate for 2021. The recipients are Lynn Lewis, US CEO of IPG media agency UM; Kimberly Paige, CMO of BET and Meredith Verdone, CMO of Bank of America.
The award celebrates luminaries who transform and set the pace for the industry and “best embody the fearless spirit” of the organization.
“The pool of nominations is almost always overwhelming because so many women are setting the bar on what outstanding leadership is all about,” said Lynn Branigan, President and CEO of She Runs It. “After the year we’ve had navigating a global pandemic and the social justice reckoning following George Floyd’s murder, I’m especially proud of this year’s winners. Lynn, Kimberly and Meredith truly embody what it means to be a leader. They have achieved as much for their companies as they have for their communities and their teams, always leading with empathy, advocating for DE&I and challenging the status quo.”
