ENGLEWOOD, CO, July 14, 2021 – Nancy Fitzgerald, Co-Founder & Chief Strategist of iLendingDIRECT, has been named a winner of the 2021 Outstanding Women in Business award from the Denver Business Journal.
Nominees for this award are judged on their leadership, business contributions and innovations, in addition to community involvement. “I’m incredibly honored and humbled to receive this recognition,” says Fitzgerald. “Women leaders across Colorado are pushing the boundaries of innovation and I’m proud to count myself among them.”
