C-Suite Awards Program

We are Accepting Nominations and Applications

C-Suite Executives play a crucial role in executing a company’s mission in a rapidly changing environment. Skill, adaptivity, creative thinking and commitment are just some of the traits necessary to recognize opportunity, identify and manage risk, achieve profitable growth and lead in times of prosperity and crisis.

The 2024 C-Suite Awards will honor the CFOs, COOs, CMOs, CLOs, Regional Managing Partners and all C-suite executives employed in a private, public or non- profit organization who have demonstrated vital leadership and business savvy to guide their companies to success. CEO’s and Presidents are only eligible if they are part of a larger, national organization.

Providence Business News will honor outstanding C-level executives for their invaluable contributions to the the region at a celebratory event on Thursday, April 25. The winners will be profiled in a special section April 26, 2024 edition. It is strongly encouraged that qualifying honorees accept their award in person at the April 25, 2024 awards dinner; please consider this when submitting your nomination.
