Syracuse, N.Y. – The Business Journal News Network and BizEventz have recognized April Brissette, Chief Credit Officer at Bankers Healthcare Group, the leading provider of financial solutions for healthcare professionals, as an honoree at the 2018 Successful Business Woman awards.
The third annual award ceremony takes place on July 18 at the Embassy Suites, Destiny USA. Brissette is being celebrated in the ‘Outstanding Mentor’ category, which honors a local area woman who demonstrates excellence in guiding others in the areas of professional and personal development.
“April has grown into an exceptional leader and mentor who continually lifts up those around her to help them succeed,” said BHG Chairman/CEO Al Crawford. “We’re all very proud to see her receive this well deserved recognition.”
Brissette joined BHG in 2007, and has since worked her way up to the role of Chief Credit Officer. In her position, she oversees both the company’s credit and funding departments—totaling to more than 30 employees.
Brissette ensures everyone on her team has a voice by practicing an open-door policy in her office for all employees to share ideas and concerns. Despite having a leadership role in the company, she continually puts herself in the trenches and works alongside her team.
Outside of BHG, Brissette is an active member of the Otisco Fire Department Support Group, where she has previously served as both the president and treasurer. She obtained an A.S. degree in Accounting from Onondaga Community College, and a B.S. in Finance from Columbia College. She resides in Tully, N.Y. with her husband and three children.
