Claudia Zacharias, MBA, CAE, president and CEO of the Board of Certification/Accreditation, International (BOC), recently received the 2012 Brava! Award from Maryland’s Baltimore SmartCEO magazine.
To be considered for the award, nominees had to be female executives leading companies that generated at least $1 million in revenue and who encourage local philanthropy, mentor fellow female leaders, and set their companies on the path to tremendous growth, according to the SmartCEO website. Zacharias was among 25 female leaders featured in the magazine’s July 2012 issue. The award recipients will be honored at the 2012 Baltimore Brava! Awards ceremony on July 11.
“SmartCEO and the group of women recognized by this award understand that being a successful leader means more than improving the bottom line,” said Zacharias. “I am grateful for the women leaders who have poured into my life, modeled community outreach, and paved the way for me.”
