Mary Powell named among top 25 most influential women by CEO Connection

Leading female CEOs will inspire next generation of leaders
Green Mountain Power President and CEO Mary Powell was named among the top 25 Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market CEO Connection in 2016. This list recognizes the top 25 women in the U.S. based on their ability to influence change, innovation, and standards for excellence in companies with annual sales between $100 million and $3 billion. GMP hopes trailblazing CEOs like Powell will inspire the next generation of female leaders to break barriers and take chances, the company said in a news release Aug. 4. Other winners include businesswoman and fashion designer Tory Burch.
“It is humbling to be among so many bright and thoughtful women who are leading companies with cutting-edge and innovative solutions to meet our toughest challenges,” said Powell. “I hope this list inspires the next wave of female leaders to step up and lead.”
Powell, one of only a handful of women to lead utilities across the country and the first woman CEO at GMP, has long been a champion of equal pay and equal rights for women and indeed all employees.
“We are honored to be able to recognize such a prestigious group of women who have truly made an impact on their company and have given back to their community,” said Kenneth Beck, chief executive officer of CEO Connection.
