Janis Jefferson Benton, Manager, Enterprises Services at Amazon Web Services, has been named one of “Houston’s 50 Most Influential Women of 2017” by Houston Woman Magazine.

Each of the honorees was nominated for inclusion on the “50 Women” list by a subscriber of Houston Woman Magazine and, later, selected by the staff of the publication.

According to Beverly Denver, publisher of Houston Woman Magazine, “Those selected as Houston’s 50 Most Influential Women of 2017 are individuals with vast networks of social and professional connections. They have earned an enviable reputation for their expertise in a particular field or arena.

They are knowledgeable, credible and worthy of trust and admiration. The thoughts and actions of these women influence the thoughts and actions of others. It is our distinct pleasure to introduce these remarkable women to our readers and to others in our community.”

Since 2008, Houston Woman Magazine has published an annual, keepsake edition featuring Houston’s 50 Most Influential Women of the Year.

A festive afternoon tea to honor and connect the “50 Women” has been an annual celebration. This year’s event, attended by more 300 invited guests, was co-hosted by Houston Woman Magazine and Chevron and held on Sunday, February 11 in the ballroom of the Junior League of Houston.
