TORONTO, Nov. 25, 2015 /CNW/ - CIBC (CM: TSX) (CM: NYSE) is pleased to announce that Laura
Dottori-Attanasio, Senior Executive Vice-President and Chief Risk
Officer, has been named a recipient of the prestigious Women's
Executive Network's (WXN) 2015 Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100
Award, which celebrates and highlights the professional achievements of
women across the country in the private, public and not-for-profit
"Laura is an exceptional leader who brings her expertise, ideas and
passion to our bank every day, helping us to build a strong,
innovative, relationship-oriented bank," said Victor Dodig, President
and CEO. "She leads through action and is a role model on many fronts,
including her outstanding support for our communities. We are very
proud to have her on our team."
Recipients are chosen based on their innovative and strategic vision,
their organization's financial performance, as well as their commitment
to their employees and communities.
Since this is her fourth time to receive this honour, Laura has been
inducted into the WXN Hall of Fame. This tribute recognizes Laura's
many contributions as an exemplary leader and is a fitting testament to
her consistent commitment to our clients, employees, and work in the
community. Last year, Laura also became CIBC's Executive Champion of
Diversity and Inclusion.
Laura joins Christina Kramer, CIBC's Executive Vice-President, Retail
Distribution and Channel Strategy, who was also inducted into the WXN
Hall of Fame last year.
"For these highly accomplished women, receiving a Top 100 Award means
much more than recognition or a chance to share the spotlight with
other remarkable Winners, it's an opportunity to pay it forward," says
WXN founder, Pamela Jeffery. "WXN Top 100 Award Winners are powerful
women both in their careers and their potential to transcend boundaries
to have a greater impact on the communities around them."
The 100 honorees will be honoured at an awards dinner tomorrow in
Toronto. A complete list of recipients can be found on the Women's Executive Network website.
