Thank you, SmartCEO!

We are so very pleased to announce that our CEO, Julie Levi, is among the 2016 Brava Award winners!

The Brava Awards celebrate the distinguished achievements of 40 of New Jersey’s top women business leaders. This year’s class collectively generates more than $2.83 billion in annual revenue and employs 14,457 individuals. The 2016 winners will be profiled in the July/August issue of SmartCEO magazine, and tonight they celebrated at an awards ceremony at the Grand Marquis in Old Bridge, NJ.

To share in the excitement leading up to the event, follow @SmartCEO #BravaAwards.

“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 New Jersey Brava Awards ceremony is an event where more than 350 local executives and guests will gather and celebrate their noteworthy achievements. Past Brava winners will also be in attendance to welcome the new class of winners into the Brava community.

About the Brava Awards

The Brava Awards program celebrates high-impact female business leaders in three categories:

  • CEOs
  • Executive Directors of Nonprofits
  • 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.
