Nominated by CEW’s Board of Governors and selected by CEW’s Achiever Awards Committee, Achiever Award Honorees represent women in the industry who have contributed both growth and mentorship within the beauty industry. The executives to be honored this fall include:

Additionally, for the first time, CEW will present its first Leadership Excellence Award to R.
