Gail Tolstoi-Miller has been named one of New Jersey’s 2013 Best 50 Women in Business. The award program is produced by NJBIZ, New Jersey’s premiere business news publication.

The Best 50 Women in Business awards program honors New Jersey’s most dynamic women in business that have been making headlines in their field. To qualify, a nominee had to meet selection criteria that included living or working in New Jersey and holding significant authority for decision making in her company. 

An independent panel of judges selected the top 50 winners based on their dedication to business growth, professional and personal accomplishments, community involvement, and advocacy for women.

“We are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to recognize this outstanding group of women.” said Thomas Curtin, publisher of NJBIZ.  “As business and community leaders, they are constantly redefining success within and outside the business arena.  On behalf of NJBIZ, we would like to thank and congratulate these fifty outstanding women for their dedication to New Jersey’s future.”

Tolstoi-Miller, a graduate of NYU, has worked in the recruiting field for more than 15 years. She serves dual CEO roles at Consultnetworx, a consulting firm and Speednetworx, a B2B speed networking event company.

Recognized for her innovative business ideas, Tolstoi-Miller spends much of her time thinking about the common plights of recruiters and job seekers--and looking for solutions. Her firms’ recent initiative, SpeedHIRE, is the only highly targeted invitational recruiting event in the nation. These revolutionary recruiting events help employers find and hire top talent quickly, while providing job seekers with more dignity and efficiency in their job search.

Amid the shrinking job market, Tolstoi-Miller has been on the forefront of putting Americans back to work while simultaneously building 2 successful businesses. She is also involved in charities such as EIF Revlon’s Walk/Run for Women and Red Bull’s Tickets for Troops. She is a former board member of Good Grief and is the founder of Human Resources NJ Mentoring Program. She will be sharing her insight in her first book, Networking Karma, which will be published later this year. Tolstoi-Miller is a member of SHRM and her companies are WBENC-certified.

“It is an honor to be included in this group of outstanding business leaders, “ said Tolstoi-Miller. “Their success stories are an inspiration to working women across NJ.”

NJBIZ and the program sponsors will honor this year’s winners during an awards ceremony on Thursday, March 21, 2013 at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, NJ.  The honorees will also be highlighted in a special supplement to NJBIZ on March 25, 2013.
