Anna Blanch Rabe & Associates CEO honored with International Businesswoman Awards

Acquisition International Announce the Winners of the 2018 Influential Businesswoman Awards

United Kingdom, 2018 – Acquisition International Magazine have announced the winners of the 2018 Influential Businesswoman Awards.

The Influential Businesswoman Awards returns in 2018 to add their voice to the masses who believe gender equality is the only solution for a sustainable global economy. Promoting and encouraging women to take part in entrepreneurial endeavours and providing opportunities in market-based enterprises is key to lifting communities across the world.

Despite this however, we recognise that female entrepreneurs still face many challenges, such as limited access to financing, training and business networks, in addition to the uncertain job markets and fluctuating economies shared with their male counterparts.

Considering these additional burdens it seems imperative to recognise the achievements made by businesswomen globally; not just the 105 million self-employed women in the UK, or the 9.4 million woman-owned firms in the USA, but to all the businesswomen who have surmounted so many obstacles to attain professional success.

We are pleased to announce that Anna Rabe, founder and CEO of Anna Blanch Rabe & Associates has been announced as: Communications CEO of the Year 2018 – South Western USA & Best Social Enterprise Communications Consultancy – New Mexico.

Discussing the awards, Katherine Benton, Coordinator stated: “It is my pleasure to recognise the outstanding female talent in the workplace, and offer my congratulations to the very best women business leaders from across the corporate landscape. I look forward to hearing more about their successes and endeavours over the coming months.”

Acquisition International prides itself on the validity of its awards and winners. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.
