June 15, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Pleasantville, N.Y.-June 2007- The Business Council of Westchester honored Dâna Michelle Barakat, Managing Partner of Creators Media Group (CMG ) with the 2007 “Rising Stars “Top 40 under 40”award.

At 25 years old, Dana is the youngest winner in this year’s competition. This makes CMG the recipient of two such honors, with the first awarded to CMG President, Anthony Trama, in 2004, at age 24. Trama currently holds the coveted title of youngest “Rising Star” in the competition’s history.

Competing with hundreds of business professionals serving Westchester County, honorees must “go beyond the expectations of professional or entrepreneurial accomplishments and obtain leadership qualities that have contributed to his or her field significantly”.

CMG’s client list includes a roll of major names in the business, including TV powerhouse Fox News, Real Estate Guru Donald Trump and many of the biggest PR firms in the Tri state area.

CMG is currently working as the exclusive production company for respected Ad agency, Red Hydrant, LLC, which services celebrity Magician David Blaine.

CMG has set records for housing the two youngest winners in the BCW “Rising Stars” Award but with 5 additional employees under the age of 40, the leading production company strives to set a few more.

Ms. Barakat will be recognized this month among the additional 39 honorees who epitomize leadership and have a hopeful vision for the booming business in Westchester County.

MasterCard Worldwide and The Westchester County Business Journal will be sponsoring the event to honor the “Top 40 under 40” Rising Stars in Westchester. The ceremony will take place at MasterCard Worldwide on June 14, 2007 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. MasterCard Worldwide is located at 2000 Purchase Street, Purchase, New York.
