Carol May, President of Wisdom Natural Brands®, parent company of the leading stevia brand SweetLeaf®, was honored with an unprecedented three coveted awards in the last week; two international awards at the 10th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business as well as a leading businesswoman in the grocery industry from Progressive Grocer.
At the celebration for the worldwide Stevie Awards, held in New York City on Nov. 8, May received the Silver Award for Lifetime Achievement in Business (across all industries), as well as a Bronze Award for Female Executive of the Year in Consumer Products.
Established in 2002, the Stevie Awards (from the Greek “stephanos,” meaning crown) mark achievement throughout the world of business. The Women in Business Awards are the world's premier awards for women executives, entrepreneurs, and the organizations they run. Like the Olympics, the awards given are Gold, Silver and Bronze.
In addition, May received an award on Nov. 5 as one of Progressive Grocer magazine’s Top Women in Grocery for 2013. Selected in the Senior Executives category, May was one of the few from a product manufacturer – rather than a grocery retailer or business services firm – considered to be changing the industry.
These awards recognize Carol May’s work as President of Wisdom Natural Brands. Overseeing strategy, operations, finance, sales, marketing, branding and new product development, May has been integral in moving Wisdom Natural Brands from a small Arizona company to a multi-million dollar international brand that competes with the world’s largest companies in one of the hottest categories in the food industry. In addition, SweetLeaf Stevia® is the only stevia brand to win 11 international taste awards.
“It’s humbling to be recognized in such great company, across so many industries,” said May. “I am deeply honored by this
