The Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer of Voices.com, Stephanie Ciccarelli, has been ranked for the third time on the 18th annual W100 list of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs, produced by PROFIT and Chatelaine.
Stephanie ranked #22 on the W100, coming up from #41 in last year’s list.
“The members of the 2016 W100 each possess the talent and tenacity to start and grow a successful business,” said James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of Canadian Business. “Their remarkable achievements serve as proof that ambitious, risk-taking female entrepreneurs are integral to the growth of the Canadian economy.”
The W100 ranks female entrepreneurs using a proprietary formula that considers the size, growth rate, and profitability of the businesses they own and manage. Published in the June issue of Canadian Business, and online at PROFITguide.com and chatelaine.com, the W100 is Canada’s largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement by women.
“I’m grateful to PROFIT and Chatelaine for providing this venue to recognize female entrepreneurs,” says Stephanie. “Congratulations to all the women and companies represented this year.”
Stephanie created Voices.com, the online marketplace that connects businesses with over 125,000 international, professional voice-over talent, in 2004 with her husband and fellow co-founder, David Ciccarelli, who serves as CEO of the company. The couple realized a gap in the $26 billion, 100-year-old voice-over industry, and digitized a service that would remove barriers for talent and clients alike. The award-winning company has since grown into a globally-recognized brand and has over 100 employees.
