Lisa Firestone of Managed Care Advisors Receives MCCC Small Business Leader of the Year Award On November 20, 2014

ROCKVILLE, MDThe Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) honors Lisa M. Firestone, President and CEO, Managed Care Advisors, Inc. (MCA) with The Small Business Leader of the Year Award at its annual Business Awards Dinner on Thursday, November 20. 

The Small Business Leader of the Year Award is presented to a successful small business owner or manager with 500 or fewer employees whose business has experienced substantial growth and whose leadership provided a positive impact on the business community in Montgomery County during the past year.

“I am both honored and humbled to be recognized as the 2014 Small Business Leader of the Year by the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce,” said Lisa Firestone, MCA President and Founder.  “The success of Managed Care Advisors is the result of hard work, dedication, focus and having an incredible team of employees and advisors who have embraced our mission and vision of ‘Empowering Individuals and Organizations to Attain and Sustain Health and Productivity’.”

Firestone is a tireless advocate for removing barriers to employment and maximizing productivity in the workplace. Since its founding in 1997, MCA has positively impacted the way in which employee benefits, workers’ compensation, medical case management and absence management programs are viewed and implemented across a diverse customer base.  Under her leadership, MCA has become a recognized leader in the management of federal workers’ compensation, and since 2005, has provided services to more than 10 government agencies.

As passionate as Firestone is about her company’s mission, she is equally committed to helping other woman-owned and small businesses meet their full potential.   Lisa currently serves on the Governing Board of Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) and on the Chamber’s Board of Directors and provides leadership on the GovConNet Procurement Conference Steering Committee.

“Lisa Firestone is recognized as a national leader in advancing full employment through medical case management, disability management and return to work programs,” said Gigi Godwin, President & CEO, MCCC. “We are proud to recognize her accomplishments and we are fortunate to have her leadership in Montgomery County.”
