New York, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2015) - Great Eastern Energy is pleased to announce that Virginie Glaenzer, Executive Vice President of Marketing, has won the New York SmartCEO 2015 Executive Management Award. The 2015 EMA winners, which include executives from CitiGroup, Bareburger Group, LLC and Siegel+Gale, collectively generate more than $74 billion in annual revenue and employ over 274,500 individuals in Greater New York.

Ms. Glaenzer and the rest of this year's winners will be recognized in the March/April issue of SmartCEO Magazine and celebrated on March 16, 2015 at Hudson Mercantile.

"I'm honored to be included in such a prestigious group of winners impacting the business climate in New York," said Glaenzer, "and I am fortunate to work with such a fantastic team at Great Eastern Energy. We're all committed to improving the bottom line for the businesses in our community."

"Virginie is a valuable asset to Great Eastern Energy and embodies the leadership, values and spirit of our commitment to our customers," said Matthew Lanfear, CEO of Great Eastern Energy. "We're delighted to see her strengths recognized as she receives the SmartCEO Executive Management Award."

The Executive Management Awards program recognizes the leadership and accomplishments of New York's management all-stars -- the CFOs, CIOs/CTOs and other C-suite executives leading the region's business community. Winners are recognized for their creative management vision, leadership philosophy, innovative strategy and work ethic. More than 300 local C-level guests will celebrate this elite group at a cocktail reception followed by an awards ceremony.

"All too often, senior leaders in an organization become unsung heroes. That is why SmartCEO designed the Executive Management Awards. The 2015 Executive Management Award winners are not only leading their companies and co-workers to achieve great things but they are also making huge contributions to their communities," says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO Events. "We are honored to recognize each of these individuals and celebrate their accomplishments."

At the Spring Marketing Summit at Trump National Doral in Miami, Florida from May 3-5, Virginie will present an interactive session about "The New Mainstream," providing marketing professionals with strategies to leverage this phenomenon, thereby potentially leading to a completely new brand positioning.
