Therese Wielage, Vice President of Marketing, has been selected as a 2019 Women of Influence honoree by the Business Record. The Women of Influence awards celebrate the work of women who have made a difference. They’ve devoted their lives to doing things most wouldn’t. They’ve spent countless hours on various boards. They’re role models with impeccable ethics. They’ve blazed a trail either personally or professionally for other women to follow.
After several years in broadcast journalism and a high tech adventure as a web development business owner, Therese has spent the last 11 years as Vice President of Marketing for Merchants Bonding Company. “It is a privilege for me to work alongside Therese as our executive team has built a larger and stronger company,” said President Larry Taylor. “With our growth, Therese has made others in our company better in everything they do, especially those around her. In addition, she has spent countless hours of her time serving on boards, mentoring and advocating for various civic, industry and charitable causes.”
When considered for recognition, candidates were judged on the following criteria:
- Success in their chosen field.
- Lasting impact on the community.
- Involvement with civic and/or nonprofit organizations.
- Role model for other women through not only their achievements but also their high ethical standards.
Therese has exemplified all of these criteria in many ways. She and the other honorees will be recognized at the 2019 Women of Influence event on August 8.
