CEO, North America & Asia Pacific
Chantelle Ludski, CEO for Anthesis North America and Asia Pacific has been named as a finalist in the Female Executive of the Year, Business Services (11 – 2,500 employees) category at The Stevie Awards for Women in Business 2022.
Now in its 19th year, the annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s premier business awards for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees, and the organizations they run. The awards are open worldwide and the Female Executive of the Year category highlights an individual’s professional experience and performance, as well as their significant achievements since July 2020, in comparison to industry competitors.
Chantelle’s leadership experience and lifelong commitment to championing the climate emergency has been demonstrated throughout her career of over 30 years, from founding Fresh! Gourmet Organics’, an ethical food business specialising in organic and Fairtrade products and growing it to become a nationally recognised organic food supplier, to joining Anthesis in 2020.
Her achievements and sustainability skillset are key assets to her contribution in accelerating an impact-focused growth strategy for Anthesis North America and Asia Pacific and activating sustainability for its clients. During her tenure, Anthesis US has been awarded the Greatest Place to Work certification for two consecutive years.
This award shortlisting builds on Anthesis’ continued momentum throughout the year following the acquisitions of Canadian agri-food sustainability consultancy, Provision Coalition Inc, and Climate Neutral Group, a Net Zero authority based in the Netherlands, Belgium, and South Africa, and most recently Padd Energy, a UK-based energy specialists. The firm has also collected Consultancy of the Year awards from Edie and BusinessGreen.
The finalists were selected by the average scores of more than 200 professionals worldwide on seven specialized juries. The Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie placements among the finalists will be revealed during a gala awards banquet on 11th November 2022 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
