Andrea Schrager named a leading woman entrepreneur
Andrea Schrager, founder and CEO of Meadowlands Consumer Center (DBA Consumer Centers of New York and New Jersey), a Global Market Research Consulting Company headquartered in Secaucus, NJ, with offices in New York City, has been honored as a Leading Woman Entrepreneur by the Leading Women Entrepreneur and Business Owners Initiative. This award recognizes trend-setting women who make a difference in their companies, industries and communities.
“We are very excited about the 2014 initiative in partnership with New Jersey Monthly Magazine that honors women business owners like Andrea Schrager because women are the forerunners to the economic recovery of our state,” states Linda Wellbrock, Founder of Leading Women Entrepreneurs.
Ms. Schrager attributes much of her success to coming from an entrepreneurial family.
“I quickly learned that risk is exciting and should be embraced, not feared,” she said. “I’ve also been honored to lead an incredibly talented group whose unique experiences in corporate, advertising, consulting, research and academic environments bring distinctive perspectives to every custom market research assignment.”
Appointed by the US Secretary of Commerce to the NJ District Export Council, Ms. Schrager also serves on the Forum Leadership Council of WBENC, the preeminent certifying organization of women-owned businesses.
“My company has been certified for over fourteen years and I can’t say enough about the benefits of certification. If you are best in class and offer a real point of difference, certification can help you get recognized,” Ms. Schrager commented. “But ultimately, it’s up to you and your team to deliver.”
Ms. Schrager is also a Board Member of the Meadowlands Regional Chamber and Friends of Anderson Park. She is active in the Women’s Presidents’ Organization and, as a Member of the Seton Hall University Leadership Council, mentors future industry and community leaders.
