Lauren Kronthal, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), of ConnectYourCare was recently selected as a 2015 Brava! Executive Winner by SmartCEO in Baltimore. The Brava! Awards celebrate the distinguished achievements of 40 of Greater Baltimore’s top women business leaders. This year’s class collectively generates more than $1.35 billion in annual revenue and employs 14,921 individuals. The winners will be profiled in the July/August issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony on July 15, 2015 at the Baltimore Harbor Hotel.
“Brava winners possess the hallmark qualities of successful leaders — vision, passion, compassion, dedication, perseverance. Each winner in this year’s class exhibits these qualities in all facets of her life, from running her business to tending to her family and donating time and resources to philanthropic initiatives,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, president of SmartCEO Events. “We are honored to recognize a group of women who are truly making a difference in the world.”
Kronthal is an integral member of the leadership team for ConnectYourCare, the nation’s top administrator of health savings accounts (HSAs) and other tax-advantaged solutions. As CMO, she uses her 20 years as a strategic marketing veteran in technology consulting to lead ConnectYourCare’s overall marketing strategy and execution including market positioning and driving market share, supporting growth across all product categories and consumer channels.
Beyond her corporate responsibilities, Kronthal is actively involved with numerous charities and philanthropic endeavors in the Baltimore area. She is a panel leader for Athena Power Link and Girls Empowerment Mission (GEM) Mentor, volunteers with the Baltimore Humane Society and SPCA, and she serves on the board of CaringOn. Her commitment to charitable causes helped lead to the creation of a corporate volunteer program for ConnectYourCare. Employees are granted a paid work day each year to participate in activities for their favorite charity.
“I am truly honored to receive this recognition,” said Kronthal. “This award recognizes qualities that all good leaders possess – strong management skills, dedication to employees, and a commitment to community.”
