CarMax and Credit Acceptance each had an executive among the honorees who are women leaders from companies on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For and Best Workplaces for Women.
Coinciding with the 107th International Women’s Day, Great Place to Work announced that among the 77 recipients were Corey Haire, who is the vice president of the East Coast Division for CarMax; and Kathy Kantzer, who is senior vice president of front end loan servicing.
Great Place to Work explained that the honorees were chosen by senior leadership at their companies for a being a leader who has consistently played a critical role in helping their organization deliver on strategic growth and business goals by creating a high-trust culture that is a great place to work for every employee.
In making the announcement, Great Place to Work chief executive officer Michael Bush said, “We are excited to celebrate the achievements of some of the top women leaders at America’s greatest companies. The companies on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For and Best Workplaces for Women are leading the conversation in workplace equality and are demonstrating to corporate America how to become more diverse, more innovative and great places to work for all.
“The inaugural awards ceremony is part of Great Place to Work’s challenge to inspire every employer and company to become a great workplace for every one of its employees. This maximizes revenue, profit and growth. We are committed to accelerating the maximization of all human potential that is currently underrepresented and disengaged across workplaces, with our first milestone of closing the work experience gap between women and men by 2020,” Bush went on to say.
Credit Acceptance president Steve Jones emphasized that Kantzer has consistently played a critical role in helping the company deliver on strategic growth and business goals that positively impact team members, customers and shareholders.
“As a leader, Kathy has a deep desire to help others be successful. She is a strong advocate for our core values and consistently works to create an environment where team members can deliver their best work,” Jones said. “Her leadership, transparency and caring demeanor are inspiring.”
