Debbie Messemer, KPMG’s Market Managing Partner for the Bay Area and member of the Bay Area Council’s Executive Committee, has been named “2016 Financial Woman of the Year” by Financial Women of San Francisco. Celebrating its 60th anniversary, FWSF seeks to advance the success of women in finance and financial services and to be a source of insight and inspiration to Bay Area women executives and managers. This award recognizes Messemer’s achievement as an industry leader and her passion for supporting young women in the industry. The award also is a platform for high-achieving winners to share their professional experience with others, inspiring them in their ambitions and careers.
“I hope to instill excitement in women considering and currently working in the financial industry. I also want to be a voice to help raise support and funds for the FWSF’s scholarship program so that younger women, who might not have had that opportunity otherwise, can pursue their dreams of a career in finance,” Messemer said. “That’s what legacy is all about.”
Messemer will be recognized at an award presentation at the Financial Woman of the Year Luncheon on September 21, 2016, at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. Register here to join us for this inspiring luncheon which directly supports the FWSF’s Scholarship Fund.
