Patricia Leuchten of The Avoca Group Wins Bronze Stevie® Award in 2013 Stevie Awards for Women in Business
Date:11/13/2013

Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) November 13, 2013

Patricia Leuchten, founder and CEO of pharmaceutical consulting and survey research firm The Avoca Group, has been named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the ‘Maverick of the Year’ category. Leuchten accepted the award at the 10th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business held in New York City.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s top honors for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run. All individuals and organizations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. The 2013 awards received entries from 18 nations and territories.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners during a sold-out event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

More than 1,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Entrepreneur of the Year, Executive of the Year, Company of the Year, Mentor of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Communications Campaign of the Year, among others. Patricia Leuchten won in the ‘Maverick of the Year’ category.

Leuchten’s nomination was based on the formation of The Avoca Quality Consortium. Recognizing a need for more collaboration to promote quality within pharmaceutical clinical trials, Leuchten decided in 2011 that her company could be the catalyst for industry change. The new Consortium brings many of the industry’s top clinical outsourcing leaders from pharmaceutical, biotech and clinical research organizations together to collaborate in best practice approaches to quality management in outsourced clinical research.

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 240 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process this year.

“For 10 years we have been recognizing the achievements of women in the workplace, and this year’s nominations were the most impressive class the judges have ever reviewed,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. “We congratulate all of this year’s Grand, Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners for their achievements.”
