A Big Day for Women

Per the WSJ article “Deloitte Taps Woman, a First, for CEO Post“, today Cathy Engelbert was appointed CEO of Deloitte (effective Mar 11).  This is exciting news for woman.  As I’ve grown in my career I more and more appreciate when women reach these senior leadership roles particularly in industries where they’re the first.  Ms. Engelbert is quoted as embracing her pioneering role.  She has been with the company since 1986 and probably deserves this appointment however her acknowledging how it will pave the way for other women is what’s truly special.

Much congrats and well wishes to Ms. Engelbert in her new role.
