Top Female Wine Industry Leaders Discuss Rise of Women in the Wine Business at "Game Changers" Event in New York City
BNY Mellon Wealth Management continued its 2017 “Game Changers” speaker series on October 25, 2017 at The NoMad Hotel Rooftop in Manhattan. The event featured Hess Family Wine Estates Chief Marketing Officer and Director of Winemaking Nicole Carter, Dutcher Crossing Winery Proprietor Debra Mathy, and Moone-Tsai Wines Co-founder and Proprietor MaryAnn Tsai, who discussed their nontraditional career paths in the wine industry and women’s important impact on the industry. Each winery provided attendees with an exclusive tasting from their small production collections.
Now in its second year, BNY Mellon Wealth Management’s “Game Changers” series explores women’s entrepreneurial and leadership successes through conversations with exceptional women who have forged unique paths and have insights to share. The discussion at The NoMad was moderated by Maggie Zeman, senior vice president and general manager of New York for Double Forte, an integrated digital marketing and communications agency.
"Women like those on our panel today have a wonderful opportunity to inspire more women to be game changers in other non-traditional industries," said Katia Friend, Managing Director BNY Mellon Wealth Management. "By sharing their individual paths to success they will undoubtedly influence and inform those who wish to excel in their chosen fields as well.”
During the presentation, the group discussed women’s fundamental impact on the wine industry and the benefits of their growing role and influence. They also shared personal stories about their individual journeys in the winemaking business.
"BNY Mellon Wealth Management’s Game Changers series is an outstanding forum for opening doors for women in a multitude of industries. It empowers women to make pivotal changes in their careers by meeting women who have," said Carter.
“Participation in the BNY Mellon Wealth Management Game Changers event is a privilege and honor. It allows women to gather, share experiences and learn from each other. These events not only benefit industry advancements today but provide us opportunity to help the growth of future generations of women,” shared Mathy.
"Participating in the BNY Mellon Wealth Management Game Changers series in New York has been a wonderful opportunity,” said Tsai. “It is an excellent way to share my path and experiences in wine with other women facing similar challenges. By sharing our collective perspectives, we hopefully are helping women entering all industries today advance their careers."
