PLANO, April 6th, 2018 — VanillaSoft is proud to announce our very own Genie Parker has been recognized by the Sales Lead Management Association as a 2018 Woman to Watch.

This is the fifth year running that Genie has been selected for the honor, which highlights extraordinary women and their accomplishments in business.

“I am very honored to receive this recognition by the SLMA panel again,” said Parker, “The 2018 list of 20 Women to Watch in Sales Lead Management is an impressive group of women.”

”This is the eighth year for this leadership recognition program,“ James W. Obermayer, the CEO of SLMA, remarked, “The twenty women selected by the judges have many things in common, such as strong business accomplishments, serving on business and non-profit boards, advanced degrees, and giving back to their communities and industries. Many are speakers, writers, and authors. They have founded companies, and fulfilled roles in sales, marketing and customer service departments.”

The leaders in business were nominated by SLMA members. Of all those nominated, 20 were selected. Nominees are judged on their contributions to a combination of C-level management skills, published works, and marketing and sales activities. Additional qualifications, such as board positions, authorships, non-profit experience and relevant activities and presentations were also taken into account.
