Under Slater’s leadership, the company now staffs offices in Homer and Syracuse, New York.
Tracy Higginbotham, President of Women TIES, explains why Slater was chosen for the board, “Terre has strong leadership and business skills as well as a presence in the Finger Lakes region where an increasing number of women entrepreneurs are looking for the services Women TIES offers.” Women TIES will be hosting quarterly events in the Finger Lakes region in 2008 to support and promote women entrepreneurs. “As Women
TIES expands its programs to specific regions in New York, it makes sense to have regional representation on the company’s advisory board,” Higginbotham states.
