Gwinnett County (METRO ATLANTA) GA – [07.15.19] – The Gwinnett Chamber Moxie Awards recognize individuals and organizations that are women-led/women-owned and those that support the advancement of women. The awards honor those who are trailblazers in male-dominated fields, Gwinnett County champions, emerging leaders, professionals who are at the peak of their career, and those who are generous with their time, talent or resources. Pond is proud to announce that Lorraine Green, President of Pond & Company, has earned a nomination in the Influence category for this year’s awards.
