The online public voted for their favorite, and along with a judging panel, narrowed the field to the Top 15. From there, a second judging panel selected five Finalists. Jessica Vartanian, 34, submitted details of her re-engineered Customer Relationship Management program, and won one of the coveted Finalists’ spots.
