Three CNB executives honored by The Journal Record

The Journal Record, an Oklahoma-based media company that specializes in business, legislative and legal-related information, recently announced the 2014 honorees for their fifth annual Oklahoma’s Most Admired CEOs event. Among those honored are two Cherokee Nation Businesses executives.

Shawn Slaton, chief executive officer of Cherokee Nation Businesses, and Cheryl Cohenour, president of Cherokee CRC, were both recognized for excellence in leadership.

The Journal Record created the award to recognize executives who succeed beyond the bottom line. The effectiveness of executives can have more to do with their ability to engage their employees and spark creativity. The honorees were selected by an industry panel from dozens of nominations and will be profiled in the Oklahoma’s Most Admired CEOs magazine to be published on Feb. 6.

As part of this event, four executives will be recognized with financial stewardship awards. Among this esteemed list is Doug Evans, chief financial officer of Cherokee Nation Businesses.

The financial stewardship award recognizes excellence in financial management, strategic thinking and contribution to the company's reputation, among many other attributes.

Congratulations to Shawn Slaton, Cheryl Cohenour and Doug Evans.
