Y&R NY's Leslie Sims Named one of AWNY's 2016 Advertising Working Mothers of the Year
February 23, 2016 - Jim Radosevic, President of Y&R New York announced that Leslie Sims, Chief Creative Officer of Y&R New York is being honored by Advertising Women of New York (AWNY) as one of their “Advertising Working Mothers of the Year.” The award ceremony, which was held at NYC’s Cipriani, recognizes seventeen of America’s top advertising working mother’s who have achieved outstanding business results in the last two years, while also serving as strong mentors in their personal and professional communities.
“There is no magic formula for balancing career and motherhood,” notes Lynn Branigan, AWNY’s Executive Director. “But the success stories behind each of our amazing honorees are powerful and compelling. They’ve each complemented leadership with motherhood in meaningful ways and their stories truly inspire not only working mothers, but all individuals in the workplace.” “Most of us already know Leslie for her creative vision, her passion for clients and her ability to get things done regardless of challenges and deadlines,” says Radosevic. “But what some perhaps don’t know is that in addition to this, she’s also an amazing, hands-on mother to her two children, which comes with an entirely different set of challenges and daily responsibilities that we don’t get to witness every day.” “The entire Y&R New York agency is so proud of Leslie’s achievement. She’s an inspiration to all of us, not just the women here,” Radosevic added.
