Canon U.S.A, Inc., a leader in digital imaging, and the Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA) named Sharon Reich of Orlando, Florida, as the 2007 recipient of the prestigious Canon Businesswomen of the Year Award at this past weekend’s EWGA Annual Conference, in Amelia Island, Florida.
Canon, in its fifth year of sponsoring this award, expanded its involvement in this year’s program to recognize 12 of the most outstanding EWGA members throughout the country. Reich and the 11 finalists were honored at this year’s event.
“The Canon Businesswoman of the Year Award recognizes a EWGA member who has demonstrated exemplary business leadership, entrepreneurial spirit and expert business acumen, skills and talent to achieve success both on and off the golf course,” said William Reed, senior vice president and general manager, Corporate Communications, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “By expanding our involvement in this program, we can help raise the recognition of true business leaders whose skills serve them well – whether it is in the boardroom or on the golf course.”
