Women tend to not go for the job until they have 100% of the qualifications. I probably had 30%.

When Metro Atlanta Chamber CEO Hala Moddelmog was 17, her mother died unexpectedly.

“It made me understand in this world nothing is given and nothing is assured. I put a stake in the ground to make sure I took care of myself,” she says.

When asked early on to be the first woman president of an international quick service restaurant firm, she quickly accepted. “I knew I could do it, but let’s be honest, I didn’t have the experience.”

Now she’s the new face of Atlanta’s business community and the first woman to lead the Chamber in its 154-year history.
