MMD COO Jenny Lopez was honored with a 2017 SmartCEO Magazine Brava Award, recognizing her leadership, professional accomplishments and dedication to philanthropy.
The Brava Awards program celebrates high-impact female business leaders in three categories: CEOs, Executive Directors of Nonprofits, and C-suite executives. Brava award winners combine their entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for giving back to the community, and are exemplary leaders of both their companies and their communities. They encourage local philanthropy, mentor up-and-coming leaders and set their companies on the path to tremendous growth. Each year, an independent committee of local business leaders selects winners based on company growth, community impact and mentoring. SmartCEO shares their inspiring stories in SmartCEO Magazine and celebrates their success at an awards ceremony.
In her role as COO, Jenny is responsible for upholding efficiency in operations, maintaining the financial health of the firm, overseeing human resources, supporting strategic planning, and increasing business development efforts. She creates and cultivates long-term business relationships, supports lead acquisition by supervising proposal efforts, and facilitates outreach campaigns. Jenny always has a pulse on the health of the firm, and manages policies and procedures to ensure that internal operations run smoothly and effectively. Most importantly, Jenny is a constant source of inspiration to all those who work with her. In challenging times, she is a positive beacon of support and encouragement. “My parents, siblings and son inspire me every day. Each of them has demonstrated an unwavering perseverance that has shaped my outlook in life, inspired my work ethic, and shown me how to be strong and positive in the face of adversity,” she says.
While living in Chicago, Jenny helped to launch a program called Career Links, which mentors young women. Her message to the young women she worked with was always one of hope – telling each of them “you are powerful, you matter, you are valued.”
