NEWARK, N.J. — Convenience Store News will welcome 41 more female leaders into its Top Women in Convenience (TWIC) family this fall.
TWIC is the first and only convenience store industry awards program that recognizes women making outstanding contributions to their companies and the industry overall.
Now in its sixth year, the program recognizes the integral role women play in convenience retailing and encompasses four different award categories honoring the full retail spectrum, from the C-suite to the store level to the independent entrepreneur.
CSNews, with the help of the Network of Executive Women (NEW) and the 2019 TWIC Advisory Board (which includes all five 2018 Women of the Year honorees), winnowed this year’s list of nominations down to the finest female executives, managers and up-and-comers working for convenience store industry retailers, distributors and suppliers.
The judging panel selected five Women of the Year, 17 Senior-Level Leaders, 14 Rising Stars and five Mentors to be inducted into the 2019 TWIC class. The honorees were chosen based on nominations received from their peers.
Drawing from achievements during the previous 12 months, nominators were asked to illustrate the candidate’s innovative corporate initiatives, extraordinary financial and strategic accomplishments, astute problem-solving acumen, exceptional performance and selfless charitable participation, along with other attributes that go above and beyond the call of duty.
