The Commercial Record asked its loyal readers to nominate deserving women in the finance, insurance and real estate sectors for our 2014 Women of FIRE awards. From dozens of nominations, our judges narrowed it down to 13 women who stood out from the crowd. They have shown substantial success in their field, they have demonstrated a commitment to professional and personal growth, and their work has enriched and advanced their fields of endeavor.

These women are mentors, philanthropists, leaders and innovators. Some are rising stars in nationwide franchises; some struck out early on their own; and one is still going strong as she heads into her ninth decade. They devote their time and their hard work to making their companies and their communities a better place for all. They serve as role models and mentors for their fellow employees, and they are paving the way in what were once male-dominated industries. Congratulations to the 2014 Women of FIRE!
