Smart CEO Brava Awards

In 2006, SmartCEO founded a program with a goal of recognizing 25 female CEOs each year who are not only growing successful companies, but who are also giving back to the community through philanthropy. Both require hard work and determination and are worthy of praise.

At CEM, we are proud that our CEO was chosen as a Brava! Award recipient in 2009.
