Carmichael Lynch Relate President Julie Batliner has been named the winner of two Silver Stevie® Awards in the Female Executive of the Year and Woman of the Year categories at the 13th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s top honors for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run. All individuals and organizations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. The 2016 awards received entries from 31 nations and territories.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners Friday, Nov. 18, during a dinner event attended by more than 500 people at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. The event was broadcast on Livestream.

More than 1,400 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories. Julie won silver in both the Female Executive of the Year for Business Services – 11 to 2,500 Employees category, as well as the Woman of the Year in the Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations category.

Julie Batliner ascended to the presidency of Carmichael Lynch Relate (formerly Spong) in September 2015 after 10 years serving as the company’s lead client relationship manager. She has won industry-leading recognition for her work from PRWeek and the Silver Anvils, among others, on behalf of some of the most prestigious brands in the world.

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 160 professionals worldwide who participated in the judging process this year.

“Each year we think the quality of achievements portrayed in Stevie-winning nominations couldn’t possibly get any better, and each year the amazing women who are recognized in this program prove us wrong,” said Michael Gallagher, Stevie Awards founder and president. “We are thrilled and humbled to be able to recognize so many outstanding women in the Stevie Awards for Women in Business, and to share the stories of their achievement with the world.”
