The Putnam County Chambers of Commerce recently selected Stacey Tompkins, President of Tompkins Landscaping Corp., as a recipient of a 2013 Trailblazer Award. The 4th annual award ceremony honored 35 Putnam County business professionals who have been effective and inventive in business and the community.
Tompkins, who accepted the Mature Trailblazer Success Award, has held her position as President of Tompkins Landscaping since 2013. There, her role has been to oversee the execution of services including but not limited to commercial excavation, hardscape and landscape design and installation, property development, and residential and road construction in Putnam, Westchester, Rockland and Dutchess counties. Prior to her promotion she held the title of Vice President for 10 years.
"It's a great honor to be recognized by your peers as a business innovator," said Tompkins of the achievement.
Apart from her professional accomplishments, Tompkins has spent much of her time immersed in the community and partaking in philanthropic efforts. She is a member of the Business Council of Westchester, Rising Tides Alliance, Woman's Small Business Advisory Board, and the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber's Board of Directors. She is a PTA Executive Board Member in Putnam Valley, as well as a member of the Citizen Advisory Board for the Putnam Valley Central School District and a Parent Representative for the Putnam Valley HS Building Steering Committee. Tompkins has offered support to charities including Caring for the Homeless of Peekskill Inc., Habitat for Humanity Putnam County, Antonia Arts Studio, Jan Peek House Shelter for the Homeless, and Support Connection.
"It's important that we continue to give back to the community," Tompkins said. "I want to make a positive difference in people's lives. Supporting these groups and causes is my way of saying thank you."
Tompkins celebrated this acknowledgment with her husband, Mark, and 3 children, Kevin, Justin and Michael. The 2013 Trailblazer Awards Gala recently celebrated the success of all 35 business professionals at Mahopac's Villa Barone Hilltop Manor.
