Maynard Cooper & Gale is pleased to announce that Katy Eldridge, a shareholder in the firm’s Birmingham office, has been named to the 2017 class of “Women Who Shape the State,” an annual list presented by This is Alabama. For the third year, This is Alabama received numerous nominations and after careful consideration, narrowed down the list to 30 of “the best and the brightest” to make up the 2017 class. Katy joins a distinguished group of business leaders, philanthropists and influencers who are being recognized for investing their time and talents toward making Alabama a better place and, in the process, encouraging other leaders to step up and do the same.
Beyond her role at Maynard Cooper, Katy serves as the President of the Junior League of Birmingham and remains involved in groups supporting the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, and Birmingham Reads, as well as contributing pro bono service. When asked about what makes a good and strong leader, she said, “A good leader needs a passion for our community that is palpable and inspires others, as well as excitement about always continuing to learn and grow.”
Pictured with Katy are fellow Maynard Cooper attorneys Rick Davis, Julie Portera, Peter Fruin and Todd Cox, who were on hand to celebrate with her as she was honored at the Women Who Shape the State luncheon on Thursday, November 9, 2017.
