6th Annual Women to Watch Reception!
Please join us at the 6th annual Women to Watch Reception!
After a nomination period, vast research, and careful review of this year’s Women to Watch nominees, Mainebiz has selected five admirable women in business who are notably outstanding leaders for a diverse number of reasons!
This year’s Women to Watch represent five different industries including: architecture, manufacturing, staffing, entertainment, and agriculture. Introducing:
- Ellen Belknap, President of SMRT Inc., a full-service architecture, engineering, and planning firm with offices in five different locations within the Northeast.
- Amber Lambke, Owner of Maine Grains at the Somerset Grist Mill, a wholesale manufacturing facility that produces locally grown, stone-milled grains, a staple in the human diet. Also the Executive Director at the Maine Grain Alliance, an organization that strives to preserve and promote Maine grain traditions.
- Lauren Wayne, General Manager at the State Theatre, a historic Portland venue, which reopened in 2010 after a major refurbishment, and since has hosted some very well-known acts such as the Avett Brothers, Elvis Costello, and Monsters of Men.
- Margo Walsh, Founder of MaineWorks, an alternative staffing agency that provides employment opportunities for those reentering the workforce who face barriers to hardships to employment.
- Claudia Raessler, CEO at Maine Textiles International, LLC, a company that owns and operates the Saco River Dyehouse, organically certified for organic and botanical textile dying.
Congratulations to 2014’s Women to Watch! Join Tidestone Solutions, the Mainebiz staff, and the other fortunate event sponsors in celebrating the success of these five remarkable women. The Women to Watch honorees will each be presenting about their personal and professional successes and perseverance in the workforce.
