One of Senators Sports & Entertainment's top executives has been nominated for a prestigious women's business award.

Erin Crowe, the organization's executive vice-president, chief financial officer and alternate governor, is one of three finalists in the corporate category for the 2009 Business Woman of the Year awards, presented by the Women's Business Network of Ottawa.

Crowe, who was promoted to her current role in June 2009 after 13 years with the Senators organization in senior financial positions, said she is "honoured" by the nomination.

"These awards are a celebration of the successes of women in business in Ottawa and it is an honour to be a finalist among a group of very accomplished females," said Crowe, one of the National Hockey League's first female alternate governors.

"I feel very fortunate that the Senators organization has continually provided me with new opportunities and experiences over the years and this is certainly a testament to their support."

Besides displaying proven business acumen, outstanding leadership skills and notable achievement in her area of expertise, finalists must also show exemplary community involvement and demonstrate a balanced lifestyle.
