The pandemic may have crashed the celebration, but the importance of the award and reasons to come together and recognize a new, exceptional class of Top Women in Store Brands could not be greater.
Since it began, the Top Women in Store Brands recognition has honored women across expertise — supply chain, marketing, corporate services, manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers and more. Leaders from across all of these positions are the ones who have come together during COVID-19 to ensure that consumers have the products they need.
The women selected here were chosen by a panel consisting of representatives from WISE and Store Brands magazine. The categories include six Functional Expertise winners in corporate services; marketing and merchandising; operations; research and development/quality assurance; sales; supply chain/procurement, as well as award winners in Innovation, Lifetime Achievement and a Sparkplug award.
Due to the pandemic, the in-person event this year will be replaced by a virtual celebration held Nov. 12 as part of the Women Impacting Storebrand Excellence (WISE) annual meeting.
