Amy Henningfield, an executive assistant at Superior Construction Company, Inc.‘s Portage office, has been recognized with an Influential Women of Northwest Indiana Award in the construction/manufacturing category.
More than 750 women and supporters packed a Merrillville banquet center on Sept. 27 to celebrate the achievements.
“It’s an amazingly well-attended event honoring women across seven counties, so it’s truly a regional event,” Erika Dombey, chair of the Northwest Indiana Influential Women Association (NWIIWA), was quoted as saying in PortageLife. “The food, the venue, and every person in the room make this a great time.”
“The momentum from the awards kept growing,” said NWIIWA president Andrea Pearman. “It’s so rewarding to see and support the strength of the women in the room, and we wanted to create something, an organization for these professional women to grow their network and professional education year-round.”
Henningfield’s LinkedIn profile says she has more than 20 years of extensive construction administrative assistant experience, and her tasks include co-ordinating and performing a range of administrative assistant duties as well as operational support activities for the company; and serving as a liaison with other departments and operating units in the resolution of day-to-day administrative and operational problems.
