April Brissette, Chief Credit Officer at Bankers Healthcare Group (BHG), is an honoree in the 2017 class of Central New York’s 40 Under FORTY. Presented by the Business Journal News Network, 40 Under FORTY recognizes 40 hard-working, civic-minded individuals under the age of 40 who have excelled in both their workplace and community.
“April is a super leader and most deserving of this recognition. She’s honest, an extremely strong communicator, and is respected by her peers and staff,” says BHG CEO Al Crawford. “April leads by example and we’re lucky to have her.”
Brissette joined BHG, the leading provider of financial solutions for healthcare professionals, in 2007 in an entry-level credit position. Today, she serves in a dual role, managing 32 employees in both the credit and funding departments. Throughout her tenure at BHG, Brissette has been recognized for her positive impact with numerous company-wide awards, including Global MVP (2016, 2015); Organizational Health Player of the Year (2014, 2013); and Employee of the Year (2010-2012). She’s also a published author, with finance-focused articles appearing in several healthcare trade magazines.
In addition to her work at BHG, Brissette volunteers with the Otisco Fire Department Support Group, planning events and fundraisers to support the local volunteer fire department. She is also a fierce advocate of raising awareness for children with developmental disabilities.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of 40 Under FORTY. Winners will be honored at an event in downtown Syracuse in November.
