Shazia Manus, chief product and strategy officer of CO-OP Financial Services, was honored with the Confidence Award during the Inspiring Women of Iowa event on April 5 in Des Moines. Sponsored by the Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa, the annual event celebrates inspiring and influential women from around the state. The Confidence Award recognizes women with positive states of mind that guide their actions. "Her confidence in the world's financial cooperatives is immediately obvious to anyone who engages with Shazia, and it's one of the many reasons we are excited to have her as a member of the CO-OP executive management team," said Todd Clark, president and CEO of CO-OP. Manus is the former CEO of Des Moines-based TMG, which the California-based company acquired earlier this month.
