The next day saw the Women’s Leadership Foundation, a Colorado organisation that works to place women on corporate and community boards, recognised Zayo with the Corporate Salute award. Zayo is one of five public companies in Colorado with four or more women on its boards.
“Zayo is committed to building a durable and impactful company, and developing a diverse and talented team is essential to this long-term journey,” said Dan Caruso, Zayo’s chairman and CEO.
“All of our board members, including our four women, bring deep experience, strong credentials and unique perspectives. The diversity of backgrounds and gender makes our board strong.”
Zayo’s women board members include Cathy Morris, senior vice president and chief strategy officer at Arrow Electronics; Nina Richardson, managing director of Three Rivers Energy and former COO of GoPro; Linda Rottenberg, co-founder and CEO of Endeavor and author of the “Crazy is a Compliment”; and Emily White, former COO of Snapchat.
“We are committed to extending diversity throughout our organization,” added Andrew Crouch, Zayo’s president and COO. “Though we are proud of what we’ve accomplished to date, further progress across multiple dimensions of diversity remains a priority.”
