Maureen Casey of IVMF Wins Prestigious Business Leadership Award
Maureen Casey, chief operating officer of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), received the Luminary Award for “Skills to Succeed” from C200, an invitation-only, global organization composed of 500 of the world’s most successful female entrepreneurs and corporate leaders. Accenture, a leading global professional services company and key strategic partner of the IVMF, nominated Casey for this national recognition. C200’s mission is to foster, celebrate and advance women’s leadership in business, helping to cultivate a pipeline of powerful future female business leaders to ensure women will continue to play increasingly significant and visible leadership roles.
“The C200 Foundation is proud to honor these impressive leaders for their successes,” says Pamela Craig, Chair of the C200 Foundation and former CFO of Accenture. “Each woman is changing the face of business for the better through entrepreneurship, corporate innovation, education and skills training and the promotion of women’s achievement in STEM fields.”
“Maureen’s career as a public servant has been remarkable and distinguished. She has one of those life stories that is, at the same time, both humbling and inspirational,” says Mike Haynie, vice chancellor of Syracuse University and executive director of the IVMF. “Maureen is a dynamic leader and a transformational thinker, and her contribution to all the IVMF has accomplished on behalf of the nation’s veterans, our military families and Syracuse University can’t be overstated.”
As a sponsor of the Committee of 200’s Skills to Succeed Champion Luminary Award, Accenture commented that Casey’s work on behalf of the IVMF perfectly reflects the Skills to Succeed initiative in that it advances employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for individuals around the globe.
