MAYOR'S OFFICE OF COMMUNICATIONS

Philadelphia, December 8, 2011 –  Nancy Winkler, City of Philadelphia Treasurer, was selected by her peers to be recognized by The Bond Buyer, a national public finance publication, as one of several "trailblazing" women in public finance for her many accomplishments.  This recognition is a part of The Bond Buyer and the Northeast Women in Public Finance non-profit's series of initiatives aimed at raising awareness about the accomplishments of women in the public finance industry.

The Bond Buyer interviewed Winkler for a supplemental piece, promoting women in finance leadership roles and encouraging more women to enter the field.  It is included in today's issue as a part of the 'Deal of the Year Awards.' The Annual Deal of the Year Awards Dinner will be held in New York City to recognize innovation in public finance.

"Nancy (Winkler) is a valuable part of my staff," said Mayor Michael A. Nutter.  "She came to our Administration with years of private experience and a drive to bring that knowledge to the public sector."

Nancy Winkler has worked in the public finance industry for 28 years.  She is a graduate of Georgetown University and the London School of Economics.
