BOSTON, MA, November 12, 2021--Longfellow Investment Management Co., LLC (LIM) is pleased to be named as one of the top women-led businesses in Massachusetts. The Commonwealth Institute (TCI) partnered with the Globe Magazine to present the Institute’s 21st year recognizing the most noteworthy companies and nonprofits headed by women in Massachusetts. The list was unveiled at a November 5th virtual event and published in the Women & Power issue of The Globe Magazine on November 7th. LIM was honored to be included in the Top 100.
The Top 100 companies on the list represent a total revenue and operating budget of more than $66.6 billion and thousands of employees, and includes health care companies, universities and colleges, financial institutions, nonprofits, manufacturing and construction firms, and other professional organizations. TCI compiled the list using revenue and operating budget data as well as other factors such as the number of employees in the state, management diversity, and innovative projects.
Additionally, LIM was one of 37 companies recognized for having an advisory board with 50% or more women members, as of December 2020. Since that time, we have expanded our Board and included another woman member, Nicole Obi, who is a vice president with the Black Economic Council of Massachusetts. She brings particular expertise in analytics and strategic planning as well as leveraging digital technologies.
“As a majority women-owned business, we are especially pleased to be among this impressive group of organizations,” said Barbara McKenna, President and CEO of LIM. “We recognize, however, that more work needs to be done to expand diversity broadly and across industries.”
The 2021 list was topped by the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, and Mass General Brigham. Founded in 1997, TCI is a nonprofit organization that supports women business leaders.
