Kathy Bellwoar, President and Founder of PPT Consulting, was recently honored to be among a select group of impressive women awarded with Philadelphia Business Journals Women of Distinction award. The award ceremony was held on November 18 at Vie in Downtown Philadelphia. The event brought together over 400 of the regions top professionals to convene for an evening of networking and an inspiring award ceremony celebrating women for their personal and professional achievements in the Philadelphia region

Kathy was nominated by Sam Katz, Executive Producer of History Making Productions, for her tremendous support and commitment to the fundraising required to enable HMP to launch the creation of their latest documentary series on the History of the Women of Philadelphia. As a Forum of Executive Board member she was instrumental in forming an alliance of these two groups, chaired the launch event for the documentary series and has continued to connect HMP to local corporations to lend support.

This is just one of Kathys latest passions as she is very active in many local professional and community organizations including her involvement as Board or Council member to Gwynedd Mercy Academy, The Haverford School and Drexel University. In addition, Kathy is a Board Member for Eagles Fly for Leukemia and serves as an Envoy for the Womens Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) where she mentors other women business owners.

We had numerous high quality applications for Women of Distinction this year and my only regret is that we couldnt honor more, said Craig Ey, Editor-in-Chief of the Philadelphia Business Journal. This years class of winners embodies all that makes the Philadelphia region great. They are talented, passionate about what they do and committed to personal, professional and community success.
