The Lacek Group (TLG), a Minneapolis-based customer-engagement agency, is excited to announce that Stephanie Ricke, Senior Vice President, Strategic Services, has received a 2015 Women in Business Award from the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. Ricke joins a roster of high-profile women business leaders in the Twin Cities who will be honored at a special luncheon and expo on May 28, 2015.

This year's Women in Business Awards salutes 50 women, including industry-leading executives and entrepreneurs, for their professional achievements, leadership qualities and contributions to the broader Twin Cities community.

“Stephanie is very passionate about her clients and colleagues at TLG, and, as a result, has made many significant contributions that support our consistent growth,” said Bill Baker, President, TLG. “We are thrilled she is being recognized as a leader in our community, and proud of her accomplishments — both that affect our industry and the causes that are important to her.”

Ricke joined TLG in 2007 and since then has played a lead role in growing the agency’s Starwood Hotels & Resorts business. In 2014, Ricke was promoted to head up TLG’s Strategic Services practice and is one of the key leaders guiding the agency’s clients into the next generation of customer engagement.

Women in Business honorees will attend the May 28 luncheon as well as be featured in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s May 29 weekly edition.
