This year The Queens Courier’s 12th Annual Top Women in Business Awards & Networking event at Terrace on the Park broke records as close to 1,000 people came out to celebrate the accomplishments of the leading women of the Queens business world.

The Tuesday night celebration opened up with an expo and cocktail hour. During this time guests were able to mingle, network and exchange business information with leaders from all different fields.

Although the night highlighted the work of over 30 women, one man stood out from the crowd. Greg Kelly, co-anchor of Fox 5 “Good Day New York,” was honored as “Man of the Year” for his countless years of success in journalism.

Honored with the award for “Woman of the Year,” Borough President Melinda Katz, who is the third woman to fill the borough president’s seat in Queens, congratulated the rest of the honorees for everything they do and accomplish.

“If you look around this room you see women who run hospitals, you see women who run colleges, you see women that help thousands of people every single day as part of their nonprofits,” Katz said. “To honor them today is only an extremely small thing that we can do for these great, outstanding women.”

All the honorees of the night received their awards from Kelly and Ms. New York United States 2013 Stephanie Jill Chernick.

This year, The Courier bestowed other special honors, including “Lifetime Achievement” to Dr. Jasmin Moshirpur, Dean/Medical Director, Elmhurst Hospital; and “Leadership in Education” to Dr. Sharon DeVivo, President-Elect, Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology.

The 12th Annual Top Women in Business Awards also presented “Hall of Fame” awards to Domenique Camacho Moran, Partner, Farrel Fritz, P.C.; Annete Vallone-Rocchio, President, Landrum School of Performing Arts and Precious Moments Nursery School & Day Care Center; Stefanie F. Handsman, First Senior Vice President, Head of Treasure Services, Bank Leumi; Linda Spiegel, Director of Public Affairs and Marketing, Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation Center/CenterLight Health System; and Maureen Buglino, Vice President for Community and Emergency Medicine, New York Hospital Queens.

“I feel very honored to be recognized as a woman in business,” said “Hall of Fame” honoree Vallone-Rocchio, who started her business at 18 years old. “This event is a great opportunity to network and mingle with other like-minded women.”

Honoree Marsha Goldberg, principal of P.S. 46, was honored for her 12 years of dedication to the Bayside school and her overall 42 years of work in the public education system. Under her guidance, P.S. 46 has been recognized as one of New York City’s best schools as it consistently received an overall “A” rating on the Department of Education Progress Report.

“I am so honored to have been chosen,” Goldberg said. “I don’t think of myself as a business woman, I think of myself as an educator. I see it as a labor of love. I think it is great that women are being recognized as leaders.” - To read more articles from The Queens Courrier, click here
