Barney & Barney’s Reeves Earns Athena Award

May 5, 2011

Barney & Barney LLC Principal and Chief Sales Officer Trindl Reeves has received Athena’s Pinnacle Award, Individual in Service, for her efforts to advance and promote women within the 102-year-old insurance brokerage firm. Athena San Diego, a nonprofit organization that promotes professional growth for women executives, presents the Pinnacle Awards annually to individuals who have had a significant impact within the San Diego business community by developing and fostering skilled and talented women.

Reeves, who has achieved continued success in the insurance industry for more than 20 years, was recognized for her efforts in launching Barney & Barney’s women’s initiative, B&B G.R.O.W., which stands for Growth in Relationships and Opportunities for Women.

“Our goal is to groom more successful female leaders like her,” said Barney & Barney Managing Principal Paul Hering about the B&B G.R.O.W. initiative. Aimed to attract women and provide meaningful opportunities for advancement within the firm, the initiative focuses on five key programs: the Keynote Speaker Series, a mentoring program, educational symposiums, social events and INSPIRE peer mentor groups.

In 2010, Reeves was named chief sales officer of Barney & Barney. As a driving force in new business development, she is charged with leading the firm’s company-wide sales effort. She has been integral in the firm’s growth. In 2008, she helped to launch the company’s Request for Proposal response program, and last year she played a key role in recruiting numerous female sales associates.

Reeves is actively involved on the boards and committees of several local organizations, such as the San Diego County YMCA, the high-tech entrepreneurial group CONNECT, the biotech trade group BIOCOM, the San Diego Venture Group and the Economic Development Corporation. She is also involved with Corporate Director’s Forum, FEI and Athena. Through her active participation with these organizations, she plays an influential role in the development of both San Diego’s business and civic communities.
