Congratulations to Carolyn Montanaro, from Neubert Financial Services, who was recently named 2017 Business Person of the Year by the Webster Chamber of Commerce.

The announcement was made at the Chamber’s monthly breakfast meeting, and was presented by Barry Howard, President/CEO of the Webster Chamber of Commerce and Joe Vitello, Chair of the Chamber Board of Directors.

The press release I received from the Chamber gave several reasons for Montanaro’s selection:

This year’s honoree is a ‘behind the scenes’ force in her company’s success, a mother, a philanthropist with human and financial resources, an active Chamber committee chair, a daughter and a wife who not only talks about the importance of family, church, school and community, she lives it every day.

She is a committed chamber member whose involvement has furthered the Chamber’s mission and its ongoing successes in the Webster community.

Carolyn and Neubert Financial Services have been very active in the Chamber since they became members more than a decade ago. As the company’s Director of Administration when her Dad formed the company in 2005, Carolyn has been a quiet influence that has helped the company grow and has helped the Chamber grow as well.

Mrs. Montanaro has been on the Membership Services Committee for many years and is currently serving as co-chair of that committee. Her passion about the Chamber is real and she never misses a chance to remind Chamber members that participation in the Chamber via committee work and attending events and breakfast has helped their business grow and has forged lifelong relationships with fellow Chamber members.

The “Business Person of the Year” is someone recognized as having set a standard of accomplishment in both business and the community. Nominations are from the Chamber’s business members who have made a significant impact on the role of business in the community. The nominee must be a member of the Chamber for at least 18 months; must be an active member who is always willing to go above and beyond, a leader that motivates others; and they must have a level of community participation by contributing resources in the form of time, talent, money, etc. to the community via projects, clubs, churches, and not-for-profits.

The Webster Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business Person of the Year honor is awarded to someone recognized as having set a standard of accomplishment in both business and the community.  The Chamber Board of Directors received several nominations this year in addition to Montanaro.

Montanaro was presented an engraved plaque which read, “2017 Business Person of the Year presented to Carolyn Montanaro in recognition of your outstanding contributions to the Chamber and your commitment to the Webster community.”

Neubert Financial Services is located at 599 Ridge Road in Webster.
