Shannon McSwiney Lands Women in Business Award

Light the candles, hang the party banners and pop the cork! We’re excited to congratulate Shannon McSwiney, our director of marketing, who just landed a Triangle's 2017 Women in Business Award! This accolade recognizes accomplished and outstanding leaders in the Triangle renowned for industry innovation, community involvement, thought leadership and dynamic change. The panel of judges, comprised of some of the Triangle’s top business personnel, selected Shannon from approximately 100 other nominees. 


Shannon spearheads Newland’s growth in the Carolinas, overseeing Wendell Falls, Briar Chapel in Chapel Hill and RiverLights in Wilmington. Through her dynamic leadership, creative strategy and strong community relationships, she helped to shape Wendell Falls into the warm, welcoming place that we love to call home. Other fun facts? Shannon is a mom of two beautiful children, a former tap dancer and knows the words to almost every popular 80s song!


Join us in celebrating with Shannon! For a few more details, the feature in the Triangle Business Journal captured it best:
