Thirty women from Louisville’s business community were honored during LBF’s annual Business Women First program on Thursday.
The event was held at the Kentucky International Convention Center and included networking, awards and a keynote speech from Louisville native Nina Leigh Krueger, who spoke about rising to her current role as president and CEO at Nestlé Purina PetCare Co.

Reporter Haley Cawthon has a wrap up of Krueger’s speech here. She spoke about how advancing your career is not always as simple as climbing the proverbial “corporate ladder.”
