The following information was released by the City of Cypress.
Cypress Police Chief Jackie Gomez-Whiteley was recently named to OC Register Metro Magazine’s annual 20 Women to Watch List. Each year, OC Register Metro Magazine, Orange County’s premier business and lifestyle publication, profiles a group of inspiring women in Orange County who are rising in influence, demonstrating leadership, and making a difference in our community and their industry.
Throughout the year, OC Register Metro Magazine’s editorial staff collects nominations and evaluates submissions until the time comes to determine the leading female professionals who deserve a place on the 20 Women to Watch list. This year, Chief Gomez-Whiteley is among the honorees for the 7th annual 20 Women to Watch list, and will be featured in the March issue of OC Register Metro magazine.
“It is extremely humbling to be included with the women executives named to the 20 Women to Watch list,” said Chief Gomez-Whiteley. “The success I have been fortunate to realize is only because others have taken the time to provide mentorship, encouragement and inspiration. As the Chief of Police at the Cypress Police Department, I am surrounded by dedicated men and women committed to providing exceptional service to the community. It is through their efforts, regardless of the challenges, that our Department has the support of the community and City Council, which we do not take for granted. Recently, the Department has been recognized for their community-policing efforts by both Crime Survivors and the Orange County Human Relations Committee. These fine men and women exemplify the nobility of law enforcement and the commitment to making our community a safe place to work, live and visit.”
“Our 20 Women to Watch exemplify leadership, and many contend that supporting those around them – particularly other women – is integral to their life’s mission,” said OC Register Metro Magazine Editor Susan Belknapp in the magazine’s story on Chief Gomez-Whiteley and her fellow commendable Orange County colleagues.
An invitation-only luncheon reception to celebrate the 2013 20 Women to Watch professionals will take place at The Center Club on Friday, March 8th. The event will be presented by Wells Fargo in partnership with OC Register Metro Magazine, a product of the Orange County Register and the Center Club. The event’s auto sponsor will be Audi Mission Viejo, along with leader table sponsors Disneyland Resort, Lion’s Heart, Make-A-Wish Foundation (Orange County & Inland Empire), and UC Irvine Claire Trevor School of the Arts.
