The Cincinnati Business Courier has chosen the honorees for its 2019 Women Who Mean Business Awards, and on Thursday, the recipients, including LPK Chief Executive Officer Sarah Tomes will gather for the fourth-annual awards luncheon.
Created to highlight female leaders making a major difference in the region, the Courier selected Tomes for her inspiring rise at LPK—from intern to CEO—and her leadership on high-impact brand initiatives, including the rebrand of ArtsWave and the development of Power of Her, connecting women-led arts programs throughout Cincinnati to honor the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage.
Tomes is being honored alongside nine other women from the Cincinnati business community: Sarah Anderson, Cintrifuse; Kelley Downing, Bartlett Wealth Management; Elizabeth Edwards, H Venture Partners; Tara Halpin, Steinhauser Inc.; Sheri Harper, Frisch’s Restaurants Inc.; Tisha Livingston, Infinite Acres; Britney Ruby Miller, Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment; Yvette Simpson, Democracy for America, ABC News commentator and Ulmer & Berne LL; and Barbara Turner, Ohio National Financial Services.
“It’s a huge honor to receive this award, especially when I look at the fellow women on this list,” said Tomes.“I accept this on behalf of my entire team at LPK, who are working to better our community through creativity.”
We are a coveted brand and innovation consultancy. A collective of curious minds and creative souls. But this is not simply a place. It’s a direction; a movement pointed ever forward. Here, each of us leads by doing. We inspire our fellow specialists, but also our clients and industry colleagues. The work we create means something and makes something: makes minds change. Makes needles move. Makes watershed moments.
You are different here, and you’ll keep on changing. You will grow here. You will be smart, brave, closer to the truth.
And your transformation will also be ours—a progression paved by following your deepest passions and wildest ideas.
Because here, you own a piece of what happens next. Here, we’re united in the belief that LPK is never finished. We are ravenous for the new, the emerging, the uncharted. We know what we hold sacred. And clinging to that, we charge ahead.Return to Careers page
