Toshiba America Business Solutions’ Teresa Sternhagen has won this year’s Silver Stevie Award for Woman Executive of the Year in the 18th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards. Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 160 business professionals around the world, working on eight juries.
Upon joining the company in 2008, the general manager of Toshiba’s toner products division has established a reputation for leadership by successfully deploying supply chain, inventory control and procurement tactics and strategies. Beginning 1 July 2019, Sternhagen has quarterbacked efforts ensuring premium levels of quality, environmental and occupational health and safety standards at Toshiba. This encompasses implementing local, state and national regulatory mandates including current ISO Certifications (ISO 9001:2015 Quality, 14001:2015 Environmental, 45001:2018 and 45001:2019 Health and Safety). She also serves on Toshiba’s Executive Leadership Team, which charts the company’s strategic direction.
Maggie Gallagher Miller, President of the Stevie Awards, said, “We thought the remarkable stories of achievement we saw in last year’s awards couldn’t be topped, but we were wrong. Women-owned and -run organisations have contributed significantly to the increase in innovation and entrepreneurial activity we’ve seen globally since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The nominations submitted to the 18th Stevie Awards for Women in Business that attest to this are inspiring, humbling, and motivating. We celebrate Toshiba’s Teresa Sternhagen for embodying these positive characteristics to benefit both her company and community.”
“Teresa is the consummate leader at work and within her community, and we are thrilled for her to receive this wonderful recognition for her efforts,” said Toshiba America Business Solutions President and Chief Executive Officer Larry White. “She leads our toner products division by demonstrating the highest levels of professionalism, positivity and compassion to Toshiba’s employees, business partners as well as the Mitchell community.”
