Nevada Bank’s Fonda claims annual SWOTY award
Jennifer Fonda of Nevada State bank last week was named winner of the 26th annual Saleswoman of the Year competition at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino.
Fonda was named winner out of four other candidates, who included Bobbi Lazzarone of Forte LLP, Lori Catalano of Five Star Premier Properties, Jacquelyn Baldwin of Real Love Life Coaching of Reno and Siobhan Cremin, Renew Lending & Omega Mortgage Group.
The SWOTY awards process involved each candidate filling out a lengthy questionnaire that asked five key questions about their background, community service work and why each candidate should be honored as the region’s saleswoman of the year.
At the awards ceremony, the five candidates put before five independent judges from the community and asked additional key questions about their professionalism, community involvement and expertise as saleswomen.
The SWOTY awards are sponsored by Professional Saleswomen of Nevada.
“The purpose of the platform is to bring all the resources together, create engagement among entrepreneurs and really be a digital representation of what we have in the startup community,” says Doug Erwin of the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada, a partner in the project.
