WASHINGTON – The Philadelphia Business Journal announced today that Special Agent in Charge Sheree Mixell, Philadelphia Field Division, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been honored as a 2012 Women of Distinction award recipient. The award recognizes the region‘s most dynamic women.

While I‘m humbled by this recognition today, I would not be receiving this honor if it were not for the dedicated men and women of the ATF Philadelphia Field Division, who are committed to fighting violent crime and making our communities safer in the Philadelphia region, said Mixell.

Philadelphia Business Journal is thrilled to honor the women who are true role models in our region in professional achievement and in community service, said Craig Ey, editor of Philadelphia Business Journal.
