Women Presidents’ Organization Announces Cynthia Hetherington Newest Member of Prestigious Women’s Business Organization

New York, NY (January 6, 2020) — The Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO), a peer advisory group for million dollar plus women-led companies, is proud to announce Cynthia Hetherington, MLS, MSM, CFE, CII, Founder and President of Hetherington Group (Hg), as the newest member of the Morris County, NJ Chapter of the WPO.

“I am very pleased to welcome Cynthia Hetherington to the WPO,” said Marsha Firestone, Ph.D., WPO President and Founder. “As a peer advisory organization for women business leaders of multi-million dollar companies, WPO membership is highly selective. Cynthia’s membership in the WPO is a testament to her incredible success in business.”

Founded in 1999, Hg is a consulting, publishing, and training firm that leads in due diligence, corporate intelligence, and cyber investigations by keeping pace with the latest security threats and assessments. For more than 25 years, Ms. Hetherington has led national and international investigations in corporate due diligence and fraud, personal asset recovery, and background checks. With a specialization in the financial, pharmaceutical, and telecommunications industries, her investigations have recovered millions of dollars in high profile corruption cases, assisting on the investigations of the top two Ponzi cases in United States history. Ms. Hetherington has authored three books on how to conduct investigations and annually trains over 7,200 investigators, security professionals, attorneys, accountants, auditors, military intelligence professionals, and federal, state, and local agencies on best practices.

“I am thrilled to be welcomed into this network of powerhouse women,” stated Ms. Hetherington. “This new decade ushers in even greater opportunities for women business leaders, and I am dedicated to working with my peers to empower each other as well as the young girls and young women who follow in our footsteps.”

“We could not be more excited to have Cynthia join the Morris County, NJ Chapter of the WPO,” said Morris County Chapter Chair Laura Osborn. “Through confidential and collaborative peer learning groups, WPO members learn new strategies for taking their businesses to the next level.”

Requirements for membership to the WPO include annual revenue of at least $2 million ($1 million for service-based companies) and an ownership interest in the company. For more information about membership to the WPO, contact Tomi Jane DeTorres, Membership and Chair Coordinator, at
