Tampa, Fla. (PRWEB) PMSI, one of the nation’s largest providers of specialty workers’ compensation products and services, announced today that Eileen Auen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, was named Business Woman of the Year, in the Business Services category, by the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
An independent panel of judges named 52 finalists for the awards out of a record pool of 360 nominations. Finalists were split across eight categories and the winners of each category were announced at a formal event on Friday, August 19. Winners were selected based on their professional contributions, demonstrated leadership and commitment to the local community.
“Tampa Bay has produced some outstanding female leaders over the years,” noted Auen. “I’m honored to be included in this group representing women who are working hard to improve their profession, the livelihood of others and the community. This is an honor I have achieved not on my own, but through the support of a dedicated team of employees and professional colleagues.”
Auen is a recognized leader in the insurance industry with more than 20 years of experience in senior-level positions. In 2010, she was named one of the “Women to Watch” by Business Insurance, a leading industry trade publication. Eileen has led PMSI since December 2008. Her previous positions include serving as Chief Executive Officer of APS Healthcare as well as holding executive positions at Aetna, CIGNA and HealthNet.
