CTC’s president and CEO claims richly deserved accolade from WXN.
The honour comes from WXN, which has championed the advancement and recognition of women in board, executive, management and professional roles since 1997.
Ms. McKenzie will join other honorees Dec. 4 at the awards gala at the Sheraton Tower Hotel in Toronto, ON. The theme for this year’s Top 100 Awards is “What Glass Ceiling?” Women can still face obstacles on their way to the top of their chosen profession, but many have made great strides.
Ms. McKenzie is one of the women in nine categories honoured in 2013 as a trailblazer, proof that change in boardrooms and other business practices are well underway.
Steve Allan, CTC chair, paid a glowing tribute to Ms. McKenzie in her nomination: “Michele is an excellent communicator and has been a sought-after speaker on tourism matters from coast to coast to coast in Canada, as well as internationally. Michele is the recognized leader of the tourism industry in Canada. She is respected for her business acumen, strategic approach, the ability to identify a need for change and to implement it, and her sound judgment and tact. She is an inspirational leader, who leads through inclusiveness, consultation, empowerment of her teams, and always with respect.”
Congrats Michele, from all your CTC team in Canada and abroad!
