NEW thanks outgoing Board Chair Michelle Gloeckler

Posted By Barb Francella, Tuesday, October 23, 2012

The Network of Executive Women thanked outgoing Board Chair Michelle Gloeckler, senior vice president, home for Walmart US, at the Leadership Summit general session this morning. 

NEW President and CEO Joan Toth presented flowers to Gloeckler, who received a standing ovation.

"It has been my honor, my pleasure and a sheer delight to serve the organization,” Gloeckler said. "All those thinking about getting involved: It's a good thing to do.” 

Gloeckler, in turn, recognized NEW Director of Operations Nathalia Granger for her contributions to the Network’s success. Afterward, everyone in the audience was gifted with a scarf emblazoned with the NEW logo.

"We're committed to supporting women on every level, on every step of their career journey,” newly elected Board Chair Catherine Lindner told the crowd of 1,000. "Women are a key part of the future of our industry. When we unleash the power of women, it not only benefits us, it benefits the men we work with. 

"The Network’s 6,700 members have the power to help each other, when we work together, not apart. Diversity is something not to be managed, but embraced.”
