Houston, Texas (November 15, 2012) Bashen Corporation announced today that its CEO, Janet Emerson Bashen, was named to the Ebony Power 100 List for 2012.

Ms. Bashen appears on the list with President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Cornel West, Robin Roberts, Jay Z, Beyoncé, and many more.

On November 2, 2012, Ms. Bashen attended the Ebony Power 100 Gala at New York City's Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick Rose Hall. The red carpet event was a star-studded affair.

"As a child, an Ebony Magazine was always displayed prominently on my parent's coffee table. It is an honor to be recognized by Ebony and to be included with such a prestigious list of accomplished African Americans."
