Portland Metro Chamber has recognized Arnerich Massena Co-CEO Reegan Rae, CPWA®, as the recipient of the Sandra K. McDonough Place With No Ceiling Leadership Award in 2023.
Each year, the Chamber honors one individual, one small company, and one large company for actively fostering opportunities and support for women in business.
“I am honored to be recognized by the Place With No Ceiling Awards,” Reegan responds. “As a CEO in the investment industry, where only 15% of advisors and only 6% of CEOs are women, I am committed to helping other women find success in our industry and particularly in helping young women and girls find their way to fulfilling careers in finance.”
Jessica Getman, Portland Metro Chamber Board Chair Emeritus and President of Brown & Brown, says, “Each year we celebrate those that lead with equity and support the advancement of women – both individual women as well as large and small companies. From the first female CEO of a business to organizations elevating women to the highest positions, we recognize the great work being done in the Pacific Northwest to foster a vision of a place with no ceiling.” The company award winners include Lane Powell, one of the Pacific Northwest’s oldest law firms, and Quinn Thomas, a world class marketing communications agency.
“We are very appreciative of Portland Metro Chamber for recognizing and elevating women in business, and I am so pleased to see Reegan recognized for her efforts,” says Arnerich Massena Chief Operating Officer Shelly Kapoor. “Reegan is committed to encouraging, supporting, and elevating women in the financial services industry. She has built a culture of inclusion — including a leadership team that is thirty percent female — and launched the company’s sponsorship of Rock the Street, Wall Street, a non-profit organization that provides financial and investment education to high school girls to spark their interest in careers in finance.”
Honorees are selected based on a specific set of judging criteria determined by a committee of Portland Metro Chamber members. Winners of the Sandra K. McDonough Leadership Award are decided based on their mentorship of women in the business community, level of community engagement, and leadership in business.
