[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Karen J. Martinez, Founder, CEO and president of BRAVO! Building Services has been selected by NJBIZ as one if its Best 50 Women in Business award recipients.
This year, NJBIZ is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of its Best 50 Women in Business awards.
For this milestone occasion, they searched far and wide for the best and most successful women in the New Jersey business community.
From industry to law, higher education to high-tech, these women are “breaking glass” as NJBIZ likes to say, and setting a standard for excellence that moves and inspires all across the state’s business community.
From a diverse pool of nominees, they select 50 honorees, in no particular ranking. After all, each one is a winner and truly worthy of that word, “best,” as she helps to shape the economic future of the Garden State.
This year’s honorees, along with many of the past winners, will be celebrated at a special NJBIZ event held March 23 at The Palace at Somerset Park.
