Last night, our President & Creative Director, Jenny Smith was recognized at the Newfoundland and Labrador Organization of Women Entrepreneurs (NLOWE) 2016 Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. The annual awards gala recognizes the best and brightest businesswomen in Newfoundland and Labrador.
One of eight big winners of the night, Jenny won start-up of the year, an award that honours an entrepreneur who has owned and operated a profitable business for a minimum of two to a maximum of five years.
For nearly 20 years, the NLOWE Entrepreneur of the Year Awards have acknowledged women entrepreneurs whose successful businesses contribute to the provincial economy and to their communities. These women are leaders in their industries, using innovative technologies and expanding into new markets.
Three years ago, Jenny had a vision. A vision to bring a non-traditional approach to advertising in Newfoundland and Labrador. The result of this was Ray, an advertising agency that brings together teams of specialists from around the world to create the best possible work.
In the last year, not only has the team doubled, but we have also welcomed nearly a dozen new clients including St. John’s International Airport Authority, School Milk Foundation, Air Labrador, Focus FS, and Centre for Health Information.
Jenny is a woman whose work ethic and drive you can respect and admire. We’re proud to call her our boss and can’t imagine a more well-deserving Entrepreneur Of The Year winner!
