Stevie Award Winners to Be Announced in New York on November 17

PARK RIDGE, IL – OCTOBER 5, 2017 – Dr. Margo Jacquot, Founder and Director of The Juniper Center, was named a Finalist in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year – Consumer Services category in the 14th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide.  The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 17.  Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the USA and several other countries are expected to attend.   The event will be broadcast on Livestream.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.  Dr. Jacquot is a Finalist in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year category.

Dr. Jacquot’s leadership and business success is driven by her continued clinical training to keep up with brain science, speaking publicly as a leader around LGBTQ and Transgender issues and by mentoring others to build their businesses. Her practice, The Juniper Center, is one of the largest, woman-owned counseling practices in Chicagoland, providing thousands of hours of expert care to hundreds of clients annually, with 25 clinicians at five locations.

Finalists were chosen by more than 170 professionals worldwide serving on five specialized judging committees.  Jurors’ average scores will also determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the finalists, which will be revealed at the November 17 event in New York.

Jacquot’s secret to sustained growth has been to expand services with clinicians trained to match needs of community and reflect the newest advances in brain science. She is a “go to” source for media on issues related to LGBTQ and Transgender.  Jacquot was a 2016 Woman of Influence honoree from the Chicago Business Journal for her mentoring work. She has built on that one-on-one connection by initiating new, most often free, professional networking and education events that regularly surpass capacity. “I am honored to have been selected as a finalist and to be among so many accomplished women entrepreneurs and executives,” said Dr. Jacquot.

“Every year we say that the current crop of Stevies for Women nominations couldn’t be better, and the next year we’re proven wrong,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards.  “The judges’ scores and comments bear witness to the fact that this year we will honor a truly remarkable class of women and women-led organizations in New York on November 17.”
