Our annual Women in Business issue of B2B is always one of our top performers, both in advertising sales and online readership. This year’s issue is bound to get some extra looks with Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert gracing our cover. We first featured Mayor Stothert in our city pub, Omaha Magazine, in 2013 at the beginning of her first term in office. It was great catching up with the ‘CEO of Omaha,’ now a decade into her civic role, for B2B. In a rather candid interview, Stothert shared her biggest financial challenges as mayor, the accomplishments she’s most proud of, and her vision for growing Omaha.
The following pages share Stothert’s story, as well as those of other women leaders spearheading change and creating community at companies, professional services, and charitable groups in the metro. YMCA of Greater Omaha, Papio Fun Park, Budget to Success, VidaNyx, Dreamweaver, The Busy Vegan, Omaha CVB, among others. They’re being led by some of the most innovative, service-oriented, problem-solving personalities around. I encourage you to peruse the book, find several stories you connect with, and be inspired by their success.
Be sure to also check out our annual Best of B2B ballot on pages 37-38 and vote for your favorite busines-to-business vendors and services in the metro. Help recognize those companies that make Omaha a great place to live and work, and drive our strong, steady economy.
And cheers to the ladies who continue to reach new heights.
