NEW members network at first-ever Denver mixer
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
More than 125 Network of Executive Women members
and supporters attended the organization's first-ever Denver-area mixer, Jan.
10, 2013, hosted at the corporate offices of WhiteWave Foods.
The event, also sponsored by MillerCoors, Safeway
Inc. and New Hope Media, featured NEW Board member Debbie Wildrick, president of
Growing Innovative Brands, who spoke to attendees about the benefits of NEW
membership. Also on the program were Kristina Cole of WhiteWave Foods, Elle
Shrefler of MillerCoors and past NEW Board member Luci Sheehan of Strategic
Sales & Marketing Initiatives.
"We’re very excited about the initial support
for development of a NEW Denver region,” Sheehan said. "We had great attendance
from women at many national sponsor organizations, but also strong interest
from smaller local companies in the natural foods industry who had no previous
involvement with the Network.”
