LEWISBURG, Pa. — Cynthia Romig, owner and president of C. Gee Inc. in Shamokin Dam, has been named one of the Best 50 Women in Business by the office of Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell.

The announcement was made by Rendell, who said that the winners of the 12th annual Best 50 Women in Business have established themselves as leaders in their respective fields and are making valuable contributions to their communities and the state.
This year's honorees are leaders who are dedicated to creating a better Pennsylvania, said Rendell. From large to small businesses covering a wide array of industries these women, and countless others across the commonwealth, are making valuable contributions to the state's future. "Their substantive efforts are creating new opportunities for our residents, growing the state's economy, and improving the quality of life in our communities."
Chosen by an independent panel of judges, honorees will be recognized during an evening reception on Monday, May 21, at the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg.
Each year, women from across the state are selected for their dedication to Pennsylvania's business growth, professional and personal accomplishments, community involvement and continued advocacy for women in business.
In addition to being among the state's most dynamic and distinguished women in business today, nominees must be a female resident of Pennsylvania or be employed in the state, an owner, partner, president, chief executive officer, board chair, in a senior executive management level position, or a woman with significant authority in decision-making in a business or company.
