Girl Scouts of Colorado CEO and Board Member are recipients of the 2021 Titan 100

 

 

Girl Scouts of Colorado Chief Executive Officer Leanna Clark and Member of the Girl Scouts of Colorado Board of Directors Shannon Sisler, senior vice president and chief people officer at Crocs, have been recognized as 2021 Titan 100s by Titan CEO and headline sponsor Wipfli LLP. The Titan 100 program recognizes Colorado’s Top 100 CEOs and C-level executives. They are the area’s most accomplished business leaders in their industry. They are selected using criteria that includes demonstrating exceptional leadership, vision, and passion. Collectively the 2021 Titan 100 and their companies employ more than 127,000 individuals and generate more than $15.9 billion in annual revenues.

Making a difference in her community, being an advocate for girls and women, and championing female ambition have long been traits Leanna Clark values. Since she took the reins at Girl Scouts of Colorado almost a year ago, the organization has continued to provide unique, innovative, and safe programming in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, including giving Girl Scouts statewide the opportunity to meet strong, female role models and explore different careers. Leanna has been named a Woman of Distinction by GSCO and one of the Top 25 Most Powerful Women by the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce. She also was inducted into the Denver Business Journal’s 40-Under-40 Hall of Fame. Serving on many boards of directors over the years, she is currently board chair for the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce and serves on the board of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame.

Shannon Sisler joined Broomfield-based Crocs in 2017 as the senior vice president and chief people officer. A business-minded, progressive leader, Shannon oversees human resources globally for the iconic footwear brand, which includes talent acquisition/development, employee relations, total rewards, and corporate facilities. Prior to joining Crocs, she held HR leadership roles with Davita and Janus Capital and most recently served as senior vice president of talent management at Western Union, where she was responsible for talent acquisition, leadership/professional development, talent management, and workforce strategy. A recipient of the Denver Business Journal’s 2020 C-Suite Award, she received her bachelor’s degree from University of Colorado and her Master of Business Administration from University of Denver. Shannon has served on GSCO’s board of directors since 2017 and currently serves as chair of the Board Governance Committee and on the board’s Executive Committee.

“We proudly recognize the Titan 100 for their achievements and contributions to Colorado’s business community and beyond. This past year, these executives were forced to navigate the daunting effects of a worldwide pandemic and their leadership was tested. The Titan100 have proven their ability to adapt, innovate and grow. We congratulate this year’s list of prestigious honorees.” says Jaime Zawmon, president of Titan CEO.

“Congratulations to the Titan 100 winners. On behalf of the partners and associates at Wipfli, we are honored not only to support Titan100 program but to recognize and celebrate these unique leaders and their accomplishments. Your vision, leadership and passion for the work you do inspires us and is critical to building a strong community here in Colorado. Each of you have built something bigger than yourself, and we look forward to seeing what new adventures you take on and successes you achieve,” said Pete Aden, partner and Rocky Mountains market leader at Wipfli.

This year’s honorees will be published in a limited-edition Titan 100 book and profiled exclusively online. They will be honored at an awards ceremony on July 22, 2021 at The Vehicle Vault in Parker. The Vehicle Vault is a unique and beautiful 20,000+-square-foot gallery that houses a collection of rare and exotic automobiles from all over the world. This special cocktail-style awards event will gather 100 Titans of Industry for an evening unlike anything that exists in the Colorado business community. In addition to this event, honorees will be given the opportunity to interact and connect multiple times throughout the year with their fellow Titans.

While earning this patch, I really enjoyed designing my own Crocs. A fact that I learned is that Crocs’ leadership team is more than 50% run by women. I thought that was interesting!

I’m a first year Brownie and I just earned Crocs’ Come As You Are patch! I really had a lot of fun working on this with my mom since we can’t have regular Girl Scout meetings because of COVID-19. Thank you Girl Scouts of Colorado so I could keep busy and still get to do Girl Scout fun things!

I learned to that I can be a champion in my own life by having more courage, being more confident, staying strong, and being a good role model and mentor, and being a G.I.R.L. (go-getter, innovator,  risk-taker, and leader).
