850 Magazine is proud to present the 2015 winners of the Pinnacle Award, an honor designed to shine the spotlight on women in our region who have set high standards for themselves and exceeded them, who are a moving force in private business and nonprofit organizations that help the needy in our society, and who promote their communities.
From a leader of one of the largest credit unions in Florida to a CEO who helps build houses for those in need, they’re moving forces in business and the community, A-listers with A-plus personalities who face challenges head on and are determined to make their world a better place.
As a group, our honorees are optimistic, energetic and goal-oriented, filled with a can-do attitude. Their professions cover a wide range of fields, from banking to health care to economic development. They well represent the urban, suburban and rural areas found within 850’s 18-county footprint. We asked our readers to nominate women they felt deserved the honor. From the names submitted, please meet the Pinnacle Award winners for 2015.
