Sausalito, CA (April 7, 2015) – Smart Meetings magazine announces that for the second consecutive year, Marin Bright, CEO and founder of Bright Business Media, LLC, has been named one of Folio’s Top Women in Media. The awards recognize “the most influential women in media—the ones driving the agenda for the industry and in their companies—women who are innovating in new ways and guiding their businesses into new markets,” as noted in Folio’s announcement.

“I’m deeply honored to be recognized by our peers at major publishing houses and B2B publications,” says Bright, who also serves as publisher of Smart Meetings, the leading meetings industry trade publication. “To receive this award two years in a row is even more meaningful.”

Bright was recognized in the Corporate Visionaries category. Others honored in the same category include women from The Atlantic, Marie Claire, Salon, Bloomberg and Harvard Business Review. The Folio awards encompass six categories—corporate visionaries, industry leaders, director-level doers, entrepreneurs, rising stars and mentors. The complete list of honorees can be viewed here.
