Elizabeth Glynn honored as a Woman Who Means Business

Elizabeth Glynn Women Who Mean Business

Perseverance to overcome obstacles, a passion and drive for excellence, and learning from mistakes were collective characteristics and common themes shared at the 2015 Women Who Mean Business Awards Luncheon, presented by the Kansas City Business Journal last Friday in Overland Park, KS.

Travois Chief Operating Officer Elizabeth Bland Glynn was one of the 25 outstanding professional women honored for making significant contributions to their businesses, industries and communities, and it was an honor to see her accept the award in front of more than 650 people at the Overland Park Convention Center!

Elizabeth was spotlighted for navigating Travois, a family-owned small business, into our 21st year of mission-driven work, while earning her MBA degree, volunteering in the community and raising three small children.

I know she especially enjoyed having her family (and colleagues at Travois!) join her at the luncheon, including her parents, Chairman and CEO David Bland and Vice Chairman Marianne Roos; husband, Phil Glynn, vice president for economic development; and brother, Greg Bland, environmental services director. Elizabeth has volunteered since 2008 with Amethyst Place, and two friends from that nonprofit organization also attended to hear the inspiring stories of women leading and succeeding.

Elizabeth is now a part of an elite group of 400 women who have been recognized as Women Who Mean Business in Kansas City in 15 years, and these talented and capable women are making Kansas City a better place to live and work!

Congratulations to Elizabeth and the rest of the award-winners, and thank you for all that you do!
