Rachel D. Hutchings, 38

Corporate & Government Relations Manager, American Airlines, Skiatook
Hutchings gives great advice: “Know yourself, and surround yourself with great people who give honest feedback.” And, she follows it. An unabashed optimist, Hutchings takes a positive outlook on her work, building relationships between American Airlines and community and civic leaders. That quality is useful for her other work, which includes chairing the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission, work on the Governors Council for Workforce and Economic Development and a hand in the Tulsa Area United Way Women’s Leadership Council. “In all things, I am at my best when connecting people to achieve common goals,” she says.
