Aug 10, 2017 9:00 AM ET

Two executives from Arrow Electronics, Inc. were named to the Profiles in Diversity Journal’s annual Women Worth Watching list for 2017: Lisa Gerber, vice president and region chief financial officer for Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions business in the Americas, and Vivian Kwok, vice president of human resources for Arrow in the Asia-Pacific region.

“Our Women Worth Watching winners chose the hard road rather than the easy one. They specifically welcomed the more demanding path,” said Michael Sheehan, editor, Profiles in Diversity Journal. “Our Women Worth Watching winners didn’t want to take the safe route, they wanted roles that would stretch and challenge them. Because they mastered the risks these amazing women developed a broad view of their specific industries.”“Lisa and Vivian are exceptional executives who guide innovation forward at Arrow day-in and day-out,” said Arrow Chief Strategy Officer Cathy Morris. “They are both very deserving of this recognition, and we look forward to watching where their Arrow careers take them next.”

Gerber and Kwok are recognized along with 119 other notable women in the Journal’s summer 2017 issue that published this week. To view the full list, please visit
