A new award launched this year, it recognizes the Houston business leaders who are most admired in the community. A panel of judges named 35 for-profit leaders and 13 nonprofit leaders to receive the award, and they were recognized in a special edition of The Houston Business Journal on August 24 and at a luncheon on August 23.
“Jennifer deserves this award,” said Kimberly Reilly, National Sales Director at Rockwood. “She is a great leader who inspires us every day. Her passion and drive to succeed are contagious.”
Jennifer co-founded Rockwood Shutters in 1998 with COO Mike Blackburn. As President and CEO, she encourages teamwork and creativity, making all employees feel valued for their contributions to the company. Jennifer is Rockwood’s biggest cheerleader and its hardest worker, making tough decisions to ensure the company provides an excellent product, great customer service and an environment everyone wants to work in every day. As the company grows, she continuously seeks ways to innovate and streamline the business processes that support the organization. In 2018, Rockwood is poised to create new products and expand into new markets.
