COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwired - June 18, 2014) - The National Association of Women Business Owners Orange County (NAWBO-OC), the premier organization for Orange County women business owners, today announced the names of the three outstanding business women who will be honored at the organization's 2014 Remarkable Women Awards Gala.
The three business women, who will be officially recognized at the dinner and awards ceremony on Thursday, October 16, 2014, are:
- Jeannie Lawrence, founder and president of Rancho Las Lomas, for Lifetime Achievement;
- Linda Kang, founder and president of KoreL Design Tiles, for Business Owner of the Year;
- Mahyar Ghassemian, founder and CEO of Ghassemian Law Group, APC, for Entrepreneur to Watch.
"This year's honorees perfectly exemplify the spirit of the Remarkable Women Awards," said Dee Elliott, incoming president, NAWBO Orange County. "Not only are they accomplished business women who have each founded and grown successful companies, they are committed to giving back through community and philanthropic involvement. In every aspect of their lives, these women are indeed remarkable."
"Every year, the most inspirational moments at the Remarkable Women Awards are when our honorees share their stories," added Penny Fox, NAWBO-OC 2014 Remarkable Women Awards Chair. "Our 2014 honorees have overcome obstacles, defied odds, survived and thrived on their respective journeys. From living with Bengal tigers to launching the first online sales of designer tiles through Costco, to combining physics and law to focus on the complex scientific and legal issues of large construction companies, our honorees' stories promise to move and inspire all who attend this year's awards."
Jeannie Lawrence, owner of Rancho Las Lomas, shares 32 acres of pristine orange groves and rose gardens with three Bengal tigers, two servals, two baby zebras, alpacas, koi and exotic birds. Well known for its lush grounds, historic architecture, and menagerie of wildlife, the ranch is one of Southern California's most sought-after special events locations, hosting over 150 events each year. Jeannie sits on the advisory board of The Rancho Las Lomas Wildlife Foundation, which creates educational programs for many local children's organizations.
Passionate about creating beautiful living and work spaces through great coverings and finishes, Linda Kang founded KoreL Design Tiles in 2006. Combining her education in business with her passion for creativity and art, Linda, sole owner of KoreL Design Tiles, designs and manages the manufacturing of tiles made from stone, metal, glass, ceramic, porcelain, wood, mirror, cement and more. Clientele include architects, designers, distributors, dealers, homeowners, and big box corporations including Lowes. In addition, KoreL was the first company to sell decorative tiles online when she launched a program with Costco in June 2006. Committed to serving and educating women and children in disadvantaged situations, Linda is actively involved in a number of charitable organizations including Kid Works and Orange County Rescue Mission.
Mahyar Ghassemian is the founder and CEO of Ghassemian Law Group, APC, a boutique law firm that focuses on construction, business and personal injury law. In addition to her law degree, Mahyar has a Master's degree in physics, which uniquely qualifies her to deal with construction issues that are heavily dependent upon expert analysis and testimony.
