Meet Mariah Nowlin Chapman - 2012 Woman of Distinction

For the past nine years, Mariah Chapman has served as Senior Vice President for BBVA Compass, effectively leading many areas of the bank’s Treasury Management Operations. She was recognized by the bank with the coveted CIO Award for excellence in job performance.

Chapman’s outstanding civic contributions include serving on the boards for the Episcopal Diocese of Jefferson County and Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama; she has chaired committees for the American Cancer Society Gala Live Auction, last year’s Women of ­Distinction Luncheon for the Girl Scouts, and the American Heart ­Association Holiday Luncheon and Fashion Show.

In addition to showing leadership in her career and through community service, Chapman demonstrates how family can remain her key focus. Her proudest accomplishment is raising her three daughters to be strong, happy, independent women. “I firmly believe that I’m making the world a better place through my influence on my children,” she says. 

Chapman will be honored at the 2012 East-Central Women of Distinction on March 9. For more information, visit
