Carol May, president of Wisdom Natural Brands and one of Progressive Grocer’s 2013 Top Women in Grocery in the Senior Executives category, was honored at the 10th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business, held in New York City on Nov. 8.

At the helm of Wisdom Natural Brands, May oversees strategy, operations, finance, sales, marketing, branding and new product development, and she has been instrumental in moving the once-small Arizona company to a multi-million dollar international brand.
“It’s humbling to be recognized in such great company, across so many industries,” May said. “I am deeply honored by this Lifetime Achievement award and I am looking forward to so many more new horizons.”
PG’s Top Women in Grocery appeared in the publication’s June 2013 issue, with special workshop sessions and a formal awards gala held on Nov. 5.
