NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Two McCann Worldgroup working mothers — Marcy Q. Samet and Devika Bulchandani — were among those honored today as "Working Mothers of the Year" by She Runs It, the industry group formerly known as Advertising Women of New York. The awards honor those outstanding mothers who work in media and marketing.
Samet, who is Global Chief Marketing Officer at MRM//McCann, won in the "Trailblazer Mom" category, which includes mothers whose oldest child is 18 years or older and who have paved the way for the current generation of working mothers. A nine-year veteran of the agency, Samet has led the team through a period of sustained advancement and expansion, adding numerous Fortune 500 clients to the agency's roster.
Bulchandani, Managing Director of McCann New York and President of McCann XBC, was named in the "Established Mom" category, which includes mothers whose oldest child is between 7-17 years old and who have positively impacted other working mothers with their skills at achieving work-life balance. Bulchandani has been part the McCann family since 1997.
Harris Diamond, Chairman and CEO of McCann Worldgroup, said "We all know how hard it is to find work-life balance. It is a tribute to Marcy and Devika to be honored with an award that salutes their major business achievements as well as their commitment to mentoring other working mothers and their positive impact at home and within their communities."
"I am incredibly honored to receive this award, which holds very special meaning for me," said Samet, whose achievements at MRM//McCann have included growing its Princeton, N.J., office and helping to build its Global Healthcare Practice. "For the past 20 years, I have balanced work and motherhood and put my all into both. I feel very fortunate to work at an agency with a team that not only encourages but celebrates working moms. I am so grateful to be surrounded by so many trailblazing women every day."
Bulchandani, who plays a dual role in driving the global MasterCard business through McCann XBC and leading the New York agency, said, "I truly feel like I have two families -- one at home and one at McCann. I'd like to share this recognition with my fellow working mothers who work so hard every day juggling the demands put on them both in and outside of the workplace."
