Clairemont CEO Honored with TBJ 2012 Women in Business Award

By Posted in - Awards & The Clairemont Team on September 6th, 2012

Did you hear the news? Clairemont’s very own CEO Dana Hughens has been named a recipient of a 2012 Women in Business Award from the Triangle Business Journal, and we’re very proud! A few of the many reasons the TBJ chose Dana for the honor:

  • Dana successfully started a business (Clairemont, of course!) during an economic downturn.
  • She has grown Clairemont to create additional full-time and part-time jobs as well as solidify a strong internship program.
  • She was invited to join the executive committee of Counselors Academy, a special section of Public Relations Society of America, where she has been named the organization’s 2013 conference chair.
  • She is going into her third year of assisting Triangle Family Services, a local nonprofit, with marketing and raising awareness of its Annual Gingerbread Benefit.

To close, we’d like to end with this quote from Dana, which was featured in a recent article honoring all 2012 Women in Business Award winners:

“I see leadership as more of a marathon than a sprint. So I hope that my best example of leadership is a consistent display of my passion for public relations…”

Congrats again, Dana!
