Kaplan EduNeering, the leading provider of ethics and compliance training solutions announced today that Lisa Clune, President, was named one of New Jersey’s 2010 Best 50 Women in Business by NJBIZ. Clune will be honored along with the winners at a gala awards ceremony on Wednesday, April 7th at The Palace at Somerset in Somerset, N.J. She will also be highlighted in a special supplement to NJBIZ.

Each year NJBIZ honors New Jersey’s most dynamic women in business that has been making headlines in their fields. As President of Kaplan EduNeering, Lisa has delivered on the company’s strategic goals. Unlike many other companies, the organization’s revenues grew during these difficult economic times by 5% over the prior year. The company attained 40 new clients, forged five new business partnerships and launched new technologies. But most importantly, the company’s operating income rose by 700%, a testament to her leadership.

“I am very honored to have been selected by NJBIZ as one of New Jersey’s 2010 Best 50 Women in Business,” said Clune. “A successful leader must set direction for her team and inspire others to want to follow her through establishing trust and mutual respect. My hope is that with this type of recognition, organizations will continue to gain insight and understanding of the unique strengths women bring to business such as collaboration, patience, and persistence.”

Being an advocate for community involvement, Lisa has guided Kaplan EduNeering’s programs and sponsorships to instill this same level of commitment from her colleagues. Lisa not only encourages her employees to be involved within their own communities, but she also promotes a healthy work/life balance. Lisa’s colleagues credit the 700% increase in profitability to her dedication and drive for both the growth of her employees and the company.

“We are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to recognize this outstanding group of women,” said Tom Curtin, publisher of NJBIZ. “As business and community leaders, they are constantly redefining success within and outside the business arena. On behalf of NJBIZ, we would like to thank and congratulate these fifty outstanding women for their dedication to New Jersey’s future.”

These awards recognize the considerable impact women business owners and leaders have in creating jobs and building communities in New Jersey, including playing an active role in all community involvement and being an advocate for promoting professional growth. To qualify, a nominee had to live and/or work in New Jersey, and hold significant authority for decision making in her business or company. A nominee must also have significant professional accomplishments within her company, industry, and economic region including exceeding company-wide goals.
