The Central New York Sales & Marketing Executives (CNYSME) has selected Stephanie Crockett, Mower’s President and Chief Operating Officer, as the 46th recipient of the highly coveted Crystal Ball Award, a recognition reserved for those who visibly impact the progress and prosperity of Central New York, demonstrate superior professionalism, and foster excellence in the industry, among other top qualities.
“If there is a continuing thread over 46 years of CNYSME’s Crystal Ball Awards, it is the recognition of one, exceptional individual each year who strives to make our Central New York Community a far better place to live and to work. Quite appropriately, this year the recognition goes to Stephanie Crockett in light of her notable professional accomplishment and her engaged civic leadership,” said Eric Mower, chairman and CEO of Mower. “Stephanie is inspirational. She aspires to excellence in all she does and, in doing so, she engenders ambition in others. That is evidenced by the tangible, beneficial impact she has every day with her clients and co-workers as well as numerous area organizations including United Way of Central New York, Landmark Theatre and CenterState CEO among others. I salute CNYSME on their well-considered selection and I salute Stephanie Crockett on her well-deserved recognition.”
