TheStreet.com CEO Elisabeth DeMarse has been included in Folio:’s inaugural list of Top Women in Media in the “corporate visionary” category.

Folio’s Top Women in Media list is comprised of influential women who are driving the agenda for the media industry and in their companies. In addition to DeMarse, honorees include such luminaries as Rodale Inc’s Maria Rodale, SheKnows’ Lea Ann Leming, Content Marketing Institute’s Cathy McPhillips, entrepreneur Rachel Ray, Cygnus Business Media’s Erica Schulz-Schueller and Glamour Magazine’s Susan Goodall.

“We created this program to acknowledge the special role that women play in our profession, and yes, the special challenges they often face in their careers,” said Folio:’s VP of Content Tony Silber. “If we’re all ultimately measured by the impact we’ve had—the mark we leave, the positive changes we’ve effected—then our honorees should feel really proud indeed.”

DeMarse’s nomination for Top Women in Media highlighted her executing a turnaround and growth strategies for TheStreet, including achieving profitability for TheStreet for the first time in four years, transforming the retail investing newsletter business, launching TheStreet Foundation with a goal of supporting and expanding financial literacy for consumers, expanding TheStreet’s video production and implementing an acquisition strategy.

DeMarse and the other honorees will be celebrated during an awards luncheon on Oct. 1 in New York City.
