“We recognize Stacy’s business success in the creation and growth of Mom Central, a company devoted to providing savvy advice to simplify and enrich the lives of busy Moms and their families, as we celebrate how it started… Stacy was a mom, first!,” McCann, explained. “Mom Central evolved out of Stacy’s work that focused on helping professional moms like herself achieve a satisfying work-life balance. She wrote four best-selling books on the topic, and soon top brands began seeking her out to help them build business with today’s moms.”

“Stacy’s expert marketing advice and insights have been featured in such broadcast outlets as CNN’s American Morning and Headline News Fox News and Fox & Friends; Bloomberg News, NBC’s Today Show, The View, The Tyra Banks Show, the CBS Early Show, the Daily Buzz, Good Morning, America, and the Rachael Ray Show. She’s also contributed to major print media, such as USA Today, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal,” McCann added.

“M2Moms® is dedicated to helping marketers improve their marketing efforts to today’s ever evolving moms. It is precisely because of moms’ purchasing power that M2Moms® draws attendance from a truly diverse and comprehensive list of brands,” McCann explained, “including Microsoft, Kellogg’s, Evenflo, IKEA, Mead Johnson, GM, Allstate, Heinz, Symantec, Hasbro, BBC, NBA, Procter & Gamble, Wyeth and Coca-Cola. They all recognize that marketing to moms is critical to continued brand growth and market share.”
