ASUG CEO Bridgette Chambers Wins 2012 Stevie[R] Award for Women in Business.

CHICAGO -- Bridgette Chambers, CEO of Americas' SAP Users' Group (ASUG), the world's largest independent community of SAP professionals, has won the Silver Stevie[R] Award in the Female Executive of the Year - Business Services category at the 9th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

Nicknamed the Steviesfor the Greek word that means "crowned," the Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world's top honors for female entrepreneurs, executives, and the organizations they run. This year's winners were announced at a Nov. 9 dinner at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. In excess of 1,200 nominations were received from organizations of all sizes and types representing 17 nations and territories. More than 200 executives worldwide participated in the judging process.

Chambers' win recognizes her achievements in reinvigorating ASUG following the remarkable financial and operational transformation she completed in 2011. Under Chambers' leadership, ASUG has introduced more than 75 new or enhanced initiatives over the past two years to better serve, educate, network and elevate the voices of ASUG's 130,000-plus members at 3,500 companies representing 17 industries.

The organization's volunteer-led chapters, Special Interest Groups, and Influence Councils also have grown and been re-energized. In addition, Chambers has created and championed many new networking and leadership training opportunities for ASUG members, including a new ASUG Executive Exchange community for senior executives and influencers, and a new ASUG Leadership 2.0 community captained by Olympic gold medalist and WNBA champion Lisa Leslie to help SAP professionals cultivate high-performance teams.

Chambers' 2012 Women in Business Stevie award follows three American Business Awards she and ASUG earned earlier this year.

"ASUG brings together individuals at all levels from businesses of all types and sizes to form the strongest consolidated voice of SAP users and influence across the globe, and it's an honor to be a member of such a vibrant community," Chambers said. "These awards are a reflection of the collective achievements of ASUG volunteers, staff and leadership who work every day to help ASUG members drive and derive the most value possible from SAP software."
