The 2005 Debin Benish Outstanding Business Woman Award, a business grant designed for Columbia-area businesswomen who have achieved excellence in leadership, mentoring and volunteerism, was awarded to Lili Vianello at the Columbia Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting on June 9th,2005. Lili Vianello is the owner and president of Visionworks Marketing & Communications, a full-service marketing and image consulting firm offering award-winning works in advertising, graphic design, public relations, event coordination and media planning & placement. This award honors Lili’s extremely extensive list of volunteering efforts coupled with starting and successfully running Visionworks Marketing & Communications for a decade.
The award was spearheaded by Women’s Network and Delta Systems Group to honor Debin Benish, Delta Systems Group’s founder and former owner. Sadly, Debin lost her battle with cancer on June 14th, 2005 but this award will live on to continue to celebrate the distinguished efforts of women in business throughout Mid-Missouri.
