Robin has been a tremendous mentor to me and the many women who have worked at RLA, showing all of us that you can balance a successful career and business, giving back to the community where most of us live, and enjoying family at the same time.
PLEASANTVILLE, NY (PRWEB) November 24, 2015
In its fifth annual salute to female business leaders of Westchester County, New York, 914 INC./Westchester Magazine recently paid tribute to 19 of the most successful and influential business women in the region. This year, this impressive list included Robin Russo – entrepreneur, founder and president of Robin Leedy & Associates (RLA), an integrated marketing agency for health and wellness brands, located in Pleasantville, New York.
In 1986, Russo left a top PR firm in NYC to become a solo practitioner out of her home in Mount Kisco, NY, creating a better work-life balance for her and her daughter. Russo’s first health and wellness client to join the agency roster was Westchester-based Combe Incorporated. The public relations and online success with Combe’s over-the-counter (OTC) brands helped propel the agency’s focus and expertise into health and wellness.
Today, RLA is located in a unique, refurbished warehouse in Pleasantville, NY, offering multi-service, integrated marketing serving a niche group of OTC, nutritional/supplement and personal care brands for both humans and pets.
“It’s a well-deserved honor for Robin,” says Russo’s business partner and executive vice president, Alyson O’Mahoney. “Robin has been a tremendous mentor to me and the many women who have worked at RLA, showing all of us that you can balance a successful career and business, giving back to the Westchester community where most of us live, and enjoying family at the same time.”
Russo accepted the award in front of her entire agency team and almost 500 additional attendees at a special luncheon honoring all 19 honorees on Friday, November 20, in Tarrytown, NY. County Executive Rob Astorino and New York State Senator Andrew Stewart- Cousins, a 2015 honoree herself, welcomed guests and delivered the keynote, respectively.
