New Jersey SmartCEO announces the 40 powerhouse female business leaders to be recognized as the winners of the 2017 SmartCEO’s Brava Awards. Synergem is proud to have our president, Amy Silverman, recognized as one of the winners, for her leadership and innovative mindset.
The Brava Awards celebrate the distinguished achievements of 40 of Greater New Jersey’s top female business leaders, chosen from 150 nominees. This year’s class collectively generates nearly $11.1 billion in annual revenue and employs 14,727 individuals. The winners will be profiled in the SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at a high energy awards ceremony on June 14, 2017 at The Imperia.
“Brava winners possess the hallmark qualities of successful leaders — vision, passion, compassion, dedication, perseverance. Each winner in this year’s class exhibits these qualities in all facets of her life, from running her business to tending to her family and donating time and resources to philanthropic initiatives,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, president of SmartCEO. “We are honored to recognize a group of women who are truly making a difference in the world.”
The Brava Awards program celebrates high-impact female business leaders in three categories: CEOs, Executive Directors of Nonprofits, and C-suite executives. Brava award winners combine their irrepressible entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for giving back to the community, and are exemplary leaders of both their companies and their communities. They encourage local philanthropy, mentor up-and-coming leaders and set their companies on the path to tremendous growth. Each year, an independent committee of local business leaders selects winners based on company growth, community impact and mentoring. SmartCEO shares their inspiring stories in SmartCEO magazine and celebrates their success at a high-energy awards gala.
