Sparta resident Maryanne Faschan, a senior vice president at Ciber (a technology and consulting company headquartered in Denver, Colorado) has been named one of New Jersey’s 2016 Best 50 Women in Business.

The award program, produced by NJBIZ, New Jersey’s premier business news publication, is presented by Wells Fargo and sponsored by WithumSmith+Brown, PC, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Comcast Business and FGV Media.

The Best 50 Women in Business awards program honors New Jersey’s successful and influential women in business who have been making headlines in their field. To qualify, a nominee had to meet the selection criteria of being a resident and/or employed in New Jersey and hold a senior management-level position with significant responsibility and authority in decision making.

An independent panel of judges selected the top fifty winners based on dedication to their careers, leadership, vision, community service, and mentoring. The 2016

judges were Cheryl Biron, One Horn Transportation; Mary Clare Garber, Princeton Legal Search Group, LLC; Angela Scheck, New Jersey State Bar Association; Sandra Schler, American Cancer Society, Inc.; Judith Sheft, New Jersey Innovation Institute @ NJIT; and Sharon Waters, Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship, Montclair State University.

“We are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to recognize this outstanding group of women,” said Thomas Curtin, publisher of NJBIZ. “As business and community leaders, they are constantly redefining success within and outside the business arena.”

NJBIZ and the program sponsors will honor this year’s winners during an awards reception and ceremony on Monday, March 21, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, NJ. The honorees will also be highlighted in a special supplement to NJBIZ.
