The accom­plish­ments of 25 women in the Char­lotte region were cel­e­brated Tuesday as they received the Char­lotte Busi­ness Journal’s 18th annual Women in Busi­ness Achieve­ment Awards. And Jane McIn­tyre, exec­u­tive director of United Way of Cen­tral Car­olinas Inc., was hon­ored with the program’s Life­time Achieve­ment Award.

McIn­tyre has led the local United Way orga­ni­za­tion since 2009, when she took the helm fol­lowing a scandal over com­pen­sa­tion for the pre­vious top exec­u­tive. McIn­tyre was rec­og­nized for her work in leading the orga­ni­za­tion out of that crisis as well as her past lead­er­ship at the YWCA Cen­tral Car­olinas and other accomplishments.

The award recip­i­ents were selected for their achieve­ments in busi­ness and their impact on the com­mu­nity. They were chosen from numerous nom­i­na­tions sub­mitted by senior man­agers, col­leagues, friends and employees.
