The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 Pinnacle Awards, honoring eight remarkable, senior-level women in Greater Boston for outstanding achievement in business and management. The honorees will be recognized on Friday, February 1, 2019 at the annual Pinnacle Award luncheon held at the Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel. This year’s Pinnacle Awards will mark the 25th Anniversary of the Greater Boston Chamber’s Women’s Network, the largest network of professional women in New England. Throughout 2019, this major anniversary will serve as a thematic highlight for the Chamber including the Annual Meeting and City Awake programs. Lisa Hughes, News Anchor for WBZ-TV will serve as the 2019 Pinnacle Awards’ Master of Ceremonies.

“I can’t think of a better way to kick off our 25th Anniversary of the Women’s Network than by celebrating these eight incredible women, their contributions to their organizations, their communities, and the overall advancement of women in the Greater Boston business community and beyond,” said James E. Rooney, president and CEO of the Greater Boston Chamber. “Our Annual Pinnacle Awards are always a Chamber programs highlight, but this year’s celebration will be one for the books, setting the tone for our focus on women in business throughout this year and for the next 25 years of our thriving Women’s Network.”
