Honoring women leaders and preparing for 2014

The Main Line Chamber of Commerce’s Gold Leaf Luncheon on Sept. 24 provided an inspirational view of leadership as we honored UnitedHealthCare regional CEO Sue Schick with the Helena Devereux Women in Leadership Award.

Sue works with a team of more than 4,000 employees in Pennsylvania and has been active in nonprofit causes that include the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk to Cure Diabetes, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the March of Dimes. Like many of the best leaders, Sue is heavily focused on helping her employees succeed and she invests company resources to developing leaders around her.

On a day that was in a way all about Sue, Sue made it clear that from her perspective, the award was about giving back to others. In its fifth year, this award has done much to inspire women and men as we take note of outstanding women leaders in our community.

Named for the glass ceiling-shattering founder of Devereux who pioneered a more positive approach to caring for people with behavioral health issues, the award has gone to Bryn Mawr Hospital President Andrea Gilbert, Citizens Bank Senior Vice President Irene Hannan, Stradley Ronon Stevens and Young Partner Linda Galante and Team Clean President Donna Allie. All were present for the program last week. Sue Schick now takes her place among this prestigious group of alumni.

As we move into October, I look forward to a discussion at our Oct. 10 Make More Save More Series event about laying the groundwork for a winning 2014. KYW News Anchor Vince Hill will moderate a panel made up of Michael DeThomas of Trigon Technology, Robert Fesnak of Fesnak and Associates accounting and consulting firm and Scott Messer of Sales Evolution. Register here if you are able to join us.

Wishing you an energizing and profitable day.
