NIAC CEO Named FORTUNE Small Business Best Boss of 2005
September 22, 2005 - Santa Cruz, CA. FORTUNE Small Business and Winning Workplaces today announced its 2005 list of Best Bosses. Pamela Davis, Founder, CEO and President of the Nonprofits Insurance Alliance Group headquartered in Santa Cruz was named one of the 15 Best Bosses for 2005. The finalists were selected from a group of 100 nationwide nominees. The panel of judges evaluated employee satisfaction, investment in workers, employee benefits as well as other measures. Nominees were subjected to a 360-degree performance review by judges talking with customers, financial and legal advisors, board members, and randomly selected employees about the nominee’s management style and philosophy.
"Receiving this award is a great honor, but the real praise goes to our terrific staff, management and boards of directors who have so patiently and painstakingly helped me to understand what it means to be a leader. It is a privilege to work with such a wonderful group in service to the best customers in the world - nonprofit organizations," Pamela Davis commented when asked about the award.
