Powell receives business honors

VERMONT — Green Mountain Power President and CEO Mary Powell was recently named among the top 25 Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market by CEO Connection, an organization for companies with between $100 million and $3 billion in annual revenue. This list recognizes the top 25 women in the U.S. based on their ability to influence change, innovation, and standards for excellence in companies their size, with the goal of encouraging the next generation of female leaders.
“It’s a joy to be among this group of very capable and accomplished women who are doing incredible things at their respective companies,” said Powell, head of Vermont’s largest electric utility. “I hope the next generation of women leaders is as inspired as I am to push the limit of what we think is possible.”
Powell, one of only a handful of women to lead utilities across the country and the first woman CEO at GMP, is a long-time champion of equal pay and equal rights for woman and indeed all employees. Her approach to leadership has been to make the organization as “flat” as possible, breaking down the traditional reporting hierarchy to encourage and support leadership and growth at all levels.
