TECO Energy was recently recognized by the Women’s Forum of New York (Women’s Forum) as a 2015 Corporate Champion for having a board of directors comprised of more than 20 percent women. The company joined 392 other Fortune 1000 and S&P 500 corporations honored at the 2015 Breakfast of Corporate Champions & Symposium on Nov. 19 in New York City.

The two women who serve on the nine-member TECO Energy Board of Directors are Evelyn V. Follit and Loretta A. Penn.
