CHICAGO, May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Chiquita Brands International (NYSE: CQB), a company known for its fresh and healthy food products, and Chicago's Korey Karnes Huyler, editor in chief of CS Magazine, are proud to reveal the fresh faces of the 25 Chicago women who are "Crushing It" in their personal, professional and philanthropic lives. The list is being introduced in conjunction with the launch of Chiquita's crushed fruit snack currently available in Chicago.
"I was thrilled to be asked to compile this list—it's gratifying to be able to work on such a positive assignment," says Korey Karnes Huyler, curator of the "Crushing It" List. "The biggest challenge was narrowing the list to just 25. To me, 'Crushing It' is defined by women who make the seemingly impossible possible. I hope everyone who made the list is as honored to be included as I was to create it."
Chiquita prides itself in recognizing individuals who are "crushing it" each and every day. While the women on the "Crushing It" List are remarkable, "crushing it" is also about surmounting the everyday challenges in life, no matter how big or small.
This is no ordinary list and no ordinary accomplishment, and you may be surprised as to who made it. Here is Chicago's "Crushing It" List:
