The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) is proud to announce that Brenda Kenny, president and chief executive officer of CEPA, has won a prestigious 2012 Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award in the Trailblazers and Trendsetters category.  The Trailblazers and Trendsetter’s category recognizes women who are either the first in their field, or have made a major impact on it, and who have made a great contribution to Canadian society in any field of endeavour.

The 2012 Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award celebrates the professional achievements of women across the country in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.  To date, 653 women have received the Top 100™ Award over the last decade, recognizing the highest achieving female leaders in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors in Canada. Winners are selected based on their strategic vision and leadership, their organization’s financial performance, and their commitment to their communities.

Co-presented by Scotiabank and KPMG, Brenda will be acknowledged on December 5th, 2012 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto, where the Top 100 Award Winners will lead WXN’s afternoon leadership Summit, appropriately themed “An Afternoon of Inspired Leadership,” offering insight to the more than 400 women in attendance.
