Stevie Award Winners to Be Announced in Las Vegas on November 11

SYDNEY, NSW – September 22, 2022 – Owner and Managing Director of ICMS Australasia, Emma Bowyer, has been named a Finalist in the Woman of the Year – Business Services category in the 19th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide.  The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Friday, November 11.  Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend.  The event will be broadcast on Livestream.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.  Emma Bowyer is a Finalist in the Woman of the Year – Business Services category.

Throughout the pandemic Emma held steadfast in her resolve to work through the many challenges the company and her clients were facing and did so with the backing of her 30-strong staff which she retained in full employment conditions throughout.

Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on seven juries. Their scores will also determine the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements that will be revealed at the 19th annual awards dinner and presentations in Las Vegas.

This year’s Stevie Awards for Women in Business event will be complemented by the fifth edition of the Women|Future Conference, a three-day educational and networking conference that will be presented virtually on November 8-10.

“In its 19th year, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business received a remarkable collection of outstanding nominations,” said Maggie Miller, president of the Stevie Awards.

“We’re looking forward to recognizing the Stevie Award winners in Las Vegas in November.”

Executive Director of ICMSA Suellen Holland said Emma’s recognition in this year’s Stevie Awards was a testament to her dedication to the company’s clients and her staff during a period of unprecedented challenges.

“Emma follows the mantra that nobody gets left behind and she was committed to this unconditionally,” Ms Holland said.

“Her strong captaincy of the ICMSA ship demonstrated a willingness to support her team and our clients far beyond what anybody expected in such a turbulent time and I and the entire company are thrilled that she has been recognized for her efforts in this way.”
