Savoy Magazine named two ING U.S., Inc. (NYSE: VOYA) executives to its 2014 “Top 100 Most Influential Blacks in Corporate America” list featured in their 13th anniversary spring issue. The Savoy Top 100 features African-American executives, influencers and achievers impacting corporate America. Rhonda Mims, ING U.S. Foundation president and head of the ING U.S. Office of Corporate Responsibility, and Edward Baker-Greene, senior vice president, Human Resources, were both named to the list.

We are all proud of their recognition.”
“The 2014 Top 100 issue features the highest caliber of executive leadership in America’s corporations,” said L.P. Green, II, publisher of Savoy Magazine. “Savoy is honored to feature such a powerful collection of inspirational leaders reaching new heights of achievement in business.”
Selection of the “Top 100 Blacks in Corporate America” began by examining the landscape of spheres of influence impacting Savoy’s readership, including corporate sector influence, scholastic achievement, career growth, community outreach and recognition. The information received from over 500 prospective candidates in diverse fields was pre-screened by the selection committee.

After reviewing all of the profiles, the field of candidates was narrowed to the 2014 “Top 100 Most Influential” listing based upon their exemplary record of accomplishments and influence while working to better their community and inspire others.
