Marney Reid is the Founder of Stilettos On The Glass Ceiling (SOTGC), a Forbes Top 100 Website For Your Career. Marney’s passion is to help women gain access to resources that will enhance their business or career. She believes that a woman’s best competitive advantage is her authentic value proposition.
Since the inception of SOTGC, Marney has seen her website grow almost overnight, as many professional and up-and-coming women turn to SOTGC as a community where like-minded women can come together to collaborate and support each other in business, life, and being a modern woman. Within the first two years of existence, SOTGC was recognized as a Forbes Top 100 Website for Your Career.
In addition to running SOTGC, Medtronic Advanced Energy created a position in 2014 specifically for Marney and she is the Global Program Manager for the Commercial Acceleration Team. Previously she spent six years as a top sales person for the company.
This role allows Marney to use her skills and experience to create training programs for both the sales team as well as interact with the Medical Education team on program ideas for surgical residents and fellows. It showcases her networking skills by ensuring smooth transitions from residency to fellowship and fellowship to new attending positions. This was a job Marney envisioned and advocated for during her time in sales. Her division felt it was substantial enough to allow her to pilot a new program to demonstrate a national benefit.
