Jeanne Englehart has won a myriad of awards in the course of several successful careers. Yet, Englehart said she was “humbled” upon learning she was chosen to receive the 2013 Athena Award, an annual award sponsored by the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce to recognize business leaders for their advocacy and support of women. Englehart’s resume includes starting a successful computer training company, running a congressman’s home office, serving as president and CEO of the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce and now, as vice president of The Charter Group.
“Jeanne’s success story is one of leading by example,” said Chamber President and CEO Rick Baker. “She has helped so many realize their potential and has been a long-time mentor and supporter of women in a wide range of business and community leadership roles.” more
