San Diego, March 20, 2015— Outward Media, Inc., a leading provider of multi-channel marketing data, announced its President and Founder Paula Chiocchi was recognized by the Stevie® Awards for Women in Business at a gala event in New York City. Named the Bronze Award winner in the “Female Entrepreneur of the Year – Business Services” category for organizations with 10 or less employees, she earned praise for her efforts to transform email marketing practices through new approaches to email data licensing, delivery and accuracy. Chiocchi has been a Vistage member since 2003.

A marketing industry innovator with more than two decades of leadership experience, Chiocchi founded OMI in 1998 to help Fortune 2000 organizations and mid-size companies expand their market reach and success.

Under Chiocchi’s direction, it revolutionized the industry by offering clients unlimited annual use of the OMI email data they acquire.
