"We are thrilled to recognize Amanda's talents and passion for the industry through this well-deserved promotion to become 100WHF's first Chief Executive Officer. Amanda has been instrumental in developing 100WHF's global growth in membership and its important partnerships. We are confident that this appointment will strengthen the organization as it continues to make a difference for the industry and the communities in which we live.Ē
