These two exceptional leaders have each made contributions to IABC that have had a global impact advancing the association and the profession. Both are role models for IABCers around the world.

Ginger Homan ABC

Ginger Homan ABC

Ginger Homan, ABC, has made a strategic contribution to the association above and beyond the call of duty. Operating at the highest level, her contribution has been centerpiece to the execution of the 2014-17 strategy for IABC, effecting a turnaround. Ginger is the embodiment of a world class board member: open, accountable and effective – with a relentless focus on enabling organizational delivery. She is also a joy to work with.

Jennifer Andrewes

Jennifer Andrewes

Jennifer Andrewes brings to life the best of IABC in the field. As an organization we believe that in today’s world, communication can be a force for good in business and society.  To make that happen we need to reach into boardrooms around the world. Jennifer and her chapter team out of Wellington, New Zealand, raised the bar in terms of height and breadth reached. Opening doors for IABC with leading government departments, blue chip corporates and agenda-setting non-profits – and those who influence them as strategic advisors. This is true leadership both advancing and enhancing the profession.

Congratulations to both these IABC leaders.
It is especially inspiring to see Jennifer, a New Zealander , acknowledged for work to progress IABC so far from the IABC homebase. As well as being proud to work with her in this part of the world, this award makes it clear IABC has a part to play in professional communication in all parts of the world.

Fantastic news about Jennifer Andrewes — thoroughly deserving this award. IABC’s Wellington chapter has thrived under Jennifer’s leadership — around 100 members, mostly in senior positions, it is the strongest professional communications body in Wellington, NZ’s capital city.
