On Wednesday night, the InkHouse team celebrated Francy Wade’s place on an impressive list of the 2011 Boston Business Journal and Mass High Tech Innovation All Stars.
The event, held for the first time at The House of Blues on Lansdowne Street, celebrated Rising Stars and Tech Luminaries including Diane Hessan of Communispace and Paul Sagan of Akamai. Francy was honored as a Rising Star, and was noted for her efforts winning the “VOTE NO on 2” campaign in 2010, which was backed by a coalition of housing advocates.
Francy joined InkHouse this year, and we are enormously grateful for her contributions. Francy puts everything she has into her work, and does not rest until she achieves the desired result. She is full of grace, generous with her laughter, kind to her co-workers, and a fierce advocate for her clients.
Francy, cheers to you for this achievement. We count ourselves as some of the lucky ones who have direct knowledge about why you were selected!
