Carol Stillwell

The lovely Carol Stillwell is the President and CEO of the Edison, NJ-based manufacturer rep company Stillwell-Hansen. As President, Carol has been named one of New Jersey’s Top Women in Business annually since 2009. Under her leadership, Stillwell-Hansen was recognized in 2016 as one of the top 250 NJ businesses, ranking eighth among women-owned enterprises. Carol’s business acumen has made her a natural choice to be appointed as a trustee on the boards of many local hospitals, colleges, theaters and charitable organizations.

With all of her amazing business accomplishments, it is perhaps her exceptional commitment to the community, through her many philanthropic endeavors, that she is most widely recognized. Carol proudly supports many wonderful organizations, far too numerous to name, and has a special place in her heart for The Ashley Lauren Foundation and the children it assists. Carol has been a supporter for many years, including events such as our Beach and Christmas parties, which she so generously sponsors each year. Carol joins us this evening as yet another example of her commitment to others as she waltzes the night away with her partner to support the mission of The Ashley Lauren Foundation.
