Lynne Marie Finn, President and CEO of Broadleaf Results, was recently recognized by Buffalo Business First as the 2021 “Businesswoman of the Year.”
Known as the publication’s highest honor for women in business, this distinction annually recognizes the business acumen and community spirit of a female whose notable contributions to Western New York made a positive difference in the area. Finn was selected by a panel of former Buffalo Business First award winners. She will be formally recognized at the 15th annual “Women of Influence” event in late September along with other award winners.
“I am truly honored to be recognized by Buffalo Business First as its ‘Businesswoman of the Year,’” said Finn. “I’ve been in business for a long time, and the past 18 months have been especially difficult for many businesses in our community. I share this award with all Women of Influence awardees, as we all strive for the same goal: to create positive change in Western New York.”
In addition to receiving the “Businesswoman of the Year” award, Finn was also named part of Buffalo Business First’s Power 200 Women list, which recognizes a group of female difference-makers whose talent and influence fuel economic, social, and cultural growth within the Western New York region. This is the fifth consecutive year that Lynne has received this distinction as one of Buffalo’s most influential women.
As the President and CEO of Broadleaf Results, an Aleron Group company and certified women-owned business, Finn has been dedicated to advancing women in business through various national and local women’s business organizations.
