Named after the nation’s first female dentist, the Lucy Hobbs Project, founded by this dental product and equipment distributor, provides a wide range of development activities to its female professionals and aspiring executives, from formal mentoring sessions and networking events to seminars with inspiring speakers, career coaches and business consultants. Women represent 33% of the execs with profit-and-loss responsibility here. In January 2016, Karen Kuklewicz-Friar was named CFO; Julie Radzyminski became VP of business innovation; and Kari Taylor was hired as VP of sales—all of them the first women in these positions.
