Denise Jones has again been listed among the area’s most influential female executives.
Denise, The Resource Center’s Chief Executive Officer, is ranked No. 34 on Buffalo Business First magazine’s list of the 200 most powerful women in Western New York. This marks the seventh straight year she has been ranked in the top 50 on the annual list of the most powerful businesswomen in the eight-county region.
It also is the second time this year Denise has been recognized by Business First: in February, the magazine ranked her No. 62 on its list of the 250 most influential people in Western New York.
TRC officials were pleased Denise again has been recognized by Business First.
“The Board of Directors congratulates Denise on her recognition by Business First as ranking 34 of the 200 most powerful women executives in Western New York,” said Patricia Perlee, Board President. “Denise leads TRC in a calm and thoughtful manner through this ever-changing time of COVID -19, decreased state reimbursements and staff shortages, all while recognizing and understanding the needs of staff, clients, residents, and families. This distinction by Business First is well earned, and TRC is very fortunate to have Denise as our Executive Director.”
Denise has been with The Resource Center since 1990. She served as TRC’s Associate Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer for eight years before being named Executive Director and CEO in 2015.
