Las Vegas, Nevada – December 2007 – Dr. Laureen Wishom, CSO of Masterpiece Solutions, LLC, received the 2007 Women in Business Stevie Award (Mentor of the Year).

The gala was held at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. Melody Thomas Scott, who stars as Nikki Newman on “The Young and the Restless,” was the emcee.

The supporting sponsor was JetBlue and the media sponsor was Pink Magazine. The Business TalkRadio Network broadcasted the ceremonies live nationwide.

Nicknamed the Stevie from the Greek word “crowned,” the Stevie Awards for Women in Business honors women executives, entrepreneurs, and the companies they run — worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” (New York Post, April 27, 2005). All finalists were chosen by business professionals worldwide. Distinguished members of the Awards Board selected the Stevie Award Winners.

The Stevie Awards are conferred in four programs: The American Business Awards, The International Business Awards, The Stevie Awards for Women in Business, and The Selling Power Sales Excellence Awards. The Stevie recognizes outstanding performances in the workplace by honoring companies of all types, sizes and the people behind them.
