Columbus Business First recently honored Amanda Reed as a Rising Star.
Columbus Business First has honored Centric Consulting’s Amanda Reed as a Rising Star in their inaugural Women of Influence Awards.
The awards program aims to recognize women who have significantly impacted their organizations, contributed to the community, and acted as mentors and advisors to foster the next generation of leaders. Reed, the Rising Star category winner, represents the up-and-coming professionals in their industries who are poised to assume leadership roles as their careers progress.
Reed’s recent client engagement as a business analyst and quality assurance tester showcased her initiative and dedication. By going above and beyond, she increased the quality of deliverables and reduced the client’s validation testing time.
“Amanda has demonstrated exceptional qualities that set her apart. Amanda’s intelligence, hard work, and team-player attitude have made her a true rising star,” said Leigh Helsel, Partner in Centric’s Columbus team.
In addition to her professional achievements, Reed has taken on leadership roles within Centric’s young professional network, NextCen, and actively participates in charitable and community service activities. Outside of Centric, she serves as part of the Columbus Leadership Team for Handshake America. This scholarship program connects junior student-athletes with accomplished professionals to guide them toward success in life.
“Amanda’s pursuit of excellence in all aspects of her life makes her a true Woman of Influence,” said Helsel. “We congratulate Amanda on this well-deserved recognition and look forward to her continued success.”
