The Best 50 Women in Business awards program honors New Jersey’s most dynamic women in business that have been making headlines in their field. To qualify, a nominee had to meet selection criteria that included living or working in New Jersey and holding significant authority for decision making in her company.

An independent panel of judges selected the top 50 winners based on their dedication to business growth, professional and personal accomplishments, community involvement and advocacy for women.

“We are proud of Adrienne and Susan and honored to have them recognized in this way,” said John P. Sheridan, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of The Cooper Health System. “Not only have Adrienne and Susan been instrumental in Cooper’s growth and development over the past several years, but they willingly give their time and talent to benefit the community in so many ways.

Kirby and Bass Levin were honored at an awards ceremony on March 24, 2014, in Somerset, NJ.
