Marissa Brett, president of the Westchester County Association, was honored as a New York Business Journal “Woman of Influence” at a luncheon Thursday afternoon in Manhattan. The Journal identified women in the Greater New York City area who have both a successful business career, as well as a strong track record of paying it forward to use their success to help other women. Brett was one of 78 women in the Greater New York City area honored by the New York Business Journal's Women of Influence program, which is part of a national effort by American City Business Journals to identify and celebrate women business leaders and to foster business environments that will create even more successful women in the future.
