Our own Michelle Drolet featured in Fierce CEO’s “Special Report Women CEOs on Blazing a Trail to the Top: Part 2”
What does it take to reach the chief executive post? Being direct about what you want, for one. “If women want the brass ring, they should try to grab it,” says Jennifer Keough, CEO of JND Legal Administration. In the second part of this two-part feature, women CEOs discuss the challenges, pitfalls and rewards of becoming a leader and key decision-maker.
Not all experience problems
Michelle Drolet, CEO of Towerwall, said she has never run into any difficulties having the role of woman CEO. “I feel blessed for never having been the target of discrimination or mistreatment,” Drolet said. “Like any business, we’ve had our share of clients with whom we needed to depart ways, but overall our contract renewals are at 96%. We have clients that have been with us since the ‘90s.”
