WFF Names 2005 Award Winners
The Women’s Foodservice Forum announced the recipients of its 2005 Trailblazer Award, Emerging Leader Award, Director’s Award and President’s Award.
The winners were honored during the group’s Annual Leadership Development Conference, held earlier this month in Orlando, Fla.
Jodi Thomas Doolin, founder and CEO of human resources analysis firm People Reports, was named the 2005 Trailblazer Award winner. The award is reserved for those who support gender diversity in their company and in the foodservice industry as a whole.
The Emerging Leader award was presented to Angela Hornsby, vice president of human resources for T.G.I. Friday’s USA. The Emerging Leader award is presented to a woman executive in the foodservice industry who “shows exceptional leadership qualities, within her company and the industry, and whose professional growth and achievements are recognized through career advancement.”
Gretchen Sussman, director of sales at Instill Corp., was given the annual Director’s Award, which honors a volunteer to the WFF who, through committee work and general support, is highly active in the organization.
Bill Giesel, chief operating officer of Rich Products Corp., and David Smallwood, vice president of multi-unit accounts with Sysco, were each presented with the President’s Award. The honor recognizes WFF board members who made major impacts on the group by driving volunteer programs.
