Congratulations to CIPE Chair Karen Kerrigan, who was named a top 100 champion in the 2012 Small Business Influencer awards. Kerrigan, who is President & CEO of the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council, said, “such recognition is an honor as I am doing what I love for people I admire and love. I get to represent the passion and hard work of entrepreneurs every day. This award is for them, and for everyone who is so dedicated to the work of the SBE Council.”
“Influencers are those who play crucial roles in the small business ecosystem, but who often are in the background,” said Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends and a co-founder of the awards.
Kerrigan was named the new CIPE Chairperson in April 2011.
