The head of a Gilbert-based sweetener company recently earned two awards at the 10th Annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
Wisdom Natural Brands President Carol May was received a silver award for lifetime achievement and a bronze award for female executive of the year in consumer products during the event in New York City on Nov. 8. May also received recognition from Progressive Grocer Magazine as a top woman in grocery prior to the event.
“It’s humbling to be recognized in such great company, across so many industries,” she said in a statement. “I am deeply honored by this Lifetime Achievement award and I am looking forward to so many more new horizons.”
The accolades came from her work at Wisdom Natural Brand, which produces Wisdom’s SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener sold at natural food stores across the country. The company’s headquarters is in Gilbert.
