Greater Philadelphia's Forum of Executive Women has recognized Cantaloupe Inc. as a Champion of Board Diversity, which honors the region's top public companies whose boards are comprised of 30% or more women. This is the first time the forum recognized Cantaloupe, a digital payments and unattended retail technology leader, for this achievement. Cantaloupe is one of 27 Philly-area companies to earn the distinction.
“I believe a diverse board such as ours is an incredible asset to any business,” said Cantaloupe chief executive Sean Feeney. “I have the privilege of working with these extraordinary women on our board. They each bring a fresh perspective and have made individual contributions we have found to be invaluable to the company.”
The forum's annual "Women in Leadership Report," compiled in partnership with PwC, examines diversity in boardrooms and executive suites at the top 100 public companies in the Philadelphia area. This year's report showed a record number of Champions of Board Diversity, with 27 companies receiving the designation, compared with 17 last year.
