Artech Information Systems L.L.C. President Named a NJ Biz Best 50 Women in Business


MORRISTOWN, NJ - March 31, 2006 -- Ranjini Poddar, Artech President, was recently named as one of New Jersey's Best 50 Women in Business out of 3,000 nominations. The inaugural award program, produced by NJBIZ, New Jersey's premiere business news publication is sponsored by Wachovia Bank, Withum Smith + Brown and Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP.

The Best 50 Women in Business award program honors New Jersey's most dynamic women business leaders who have been making headlines in their field. The awards recognize the impact women business owners and business leaders have in creating jobs and building communities in New Jersey.

I am thrilled to receive this award, Ms. Poddar said. Women have excellent opportunities to thrive in the business arena within New Jersey. More corporations are opening doors enabling minority businesses to thrive and business laws are also changing to embrace women business efforts as we become more recognized for our significant contributions to the economy.

NJBIZ is honoring this year's 50 winners with an awards ceremony on Thursday, March 23 at the Ocean Place and Resort in Long Branch, New Jersey. In addition, winners will be highlighted in a special supplement to NJBIZ on March 27, 2006.

We are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to recognize this outstanding group of women, said David A. Shankweiler, CEO of Journal Publications, parent company of NJBIZ. As business and community leaders, they are constantly redefining success within and outside the business arena."
