We are pleased to announce that Kelly Bennett, President and COO of Kelly Direct Inc., has been honored with the distinction as a “Top 50 Woman in Business” by the Pacific Coast Business Times.  The announcement, made by Henry Dubroff, Chairman and Editor of the highly regarded publication, recognizes top female executives in a tri-county area in Southern California.   This is the second consecutive year Bennett has earned this award.

The publication serves business interests in Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties.  The combined population of these counties is 1.5 million and is home to several Fortune 500 firms including Amgen, CKE Restaurants, Dole Food and Patagonia.

“The elevated role for women in the C-suite really vindicates our decision to spotlight the top female executives in the Tri-counties.  It also makes the job of picking our Top 50 Women in Business that much harder,” says Dubroff.

Bennett is among three award recipients in the Consumer Services Division.  Other honorees include Kathleen Cochran, GM of Bacara Resort and Rose Marcario, CEO of Patagonia.  The keynote speaker is Pam Lopker, Founder and President of QAD, once named the richest self-made women in America by Forbes.

The awards ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, April 16 at the Outdoor Rotunda at Decker’s corporate headquarters in Goleta.  The event will be held between 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  Kelly Direct has a limited number of reserve seats available for interested clients and partners.  Tickets may also be obtained at
