Kathy Romito, Community Outreach Coordinator at Western Reserve Hospital, received the 2014 “Business Person of the Year” award from the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce.
“These awards are the highest honor a person in Cuyahoga Falls can receive from the Chamber of Commerce,” said Chamber CEO Laura Petrella.
Every chamber member is eligible to win this award, but the winner is selected based on personal and professional achievements and contributions to Cuyahoga Falls, including volunteer work, efforts in the community and contributions to the chamber.
Cuyahoga Falls Mayor Don Walters will introduce and present the chamber awards, which also include Business of the Year and Citizen of the Year, at the Chamber Award Luncheon on Wednesday, May 21, from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Sheraton Suites in Cuyahoga Falls.
Although still early in the year, Romito has already earned several awards and honors in 2014. In February, she won the Distinguished Sales and Marketing Award from the Sales & Marketing Executives International association. She was also appointed to the board of directors in both the Stow/Munroe Falls and Cuyahoga Falls Chambers of Commerce. Romito has served and continues to serve in numerous community organizations.
At Western Reserve Hospital, Romito is responsible for all charitable events. She establishes and maintains strong community partnerships by working closely with schools, businesses, churches, local government organizations and more.
