The Specialty Advertising Association of Greater New York (SAAGNY) has selected Eileen Lynch, northeast regional sales manager at BIC Graphic, for induction into the SAAGNY Hall of Fame, the highest honor the association bestows upon any individual.

Lynch has been a long-time member of and volunteer for SAAGNY, including serving on the board of directors from 1992-2015, and has served as treasurer, vice president and president. She also chaired the Promotions East Committee and served on numerous committees and subcommittees. During her volunteer career, Lynch was a SAAGNY Foundation Trustee for three years, served PPAI in its Ambassador Program, was a RAC delegate and a member of its Women’s Leadership Committee. In 2017 Lynch was also named one of PPB’s Best Bosses.

“One of Eileen’s greatest traits which makes her a candidate for this recognition is that she is a strong and confident leader, while being able to embrace differences of opinions and being able to manage different individuals,” says SAAGNY Past President Bill Lazarus. “She truly knows how to bring people together. This was demonstrated in her role as trade show co-chair for Promotions East and a reason why Eileen was named one of the Best Bosses in 2017 by PPB magazine.”

SAAGNY President John R. B. Cudahy, CAS, adds, “Eileen has spent over a decade volunteering with the association. Her dedication to SAAGNY as well as the SAAGNY Foundation, has played an integral part in ensuring the association’s future success. I am delighted to honor Eileen’s service with the SAAGNY Hall of Fame honor.”

Lynch will formally be inducted into the Hall of Fame during a ceremony on December 12 at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle, New York.
