During each month of 2011, the Women’s Business Network will feature a Utah Valley businesswoman who has demonstrated business excellence in areas such as leadership, community contribution, and innovation. By identifying contributors from our community, we hope to learn from and network with other successful women as well as acknowledge success! WBN’s past chair, Cynthia Gambill of Remedez, will be interviewing and introducing us to these outstanding women.
