Maria Pampafikos, co-owner & vice president of the Royal Regency Hotel (located in Yonkers, NY), was recently named a 2015 winner of two prestigious awards—Westfair Communications “Milli” award and 914INC. Magazine’s “Women in Business” award. Maria, her husband Nick, and their three children reside in Rockland County, New York.
“I am honored to receive both the ‘Milli’ award from Westfair Communications and the ‘Women in Business’ award from 914INC. Magazine,” said Pampafikos. “My family has owned the hotel since 1994, and I am committed to continuing their legacy while providing our guests with continued excellent customer service and care. In fact, we just completed a multi-million dollar renovation project this fall that transformed the hotel into Westchester’s first, and only, boutique hotel.”
On November 17, Westfair Communications celebrated their inaugural “Milli” awards. The award honors exceptional millennials (ages 21-34) living or working in Fairfield or Westchester counties who are changing the world in the following categories: community; “millipreneur” (entrepreneur); nonprofit; innovation; creative; technology; medical; and green.
On November 20, 914INC. Magazine hosted its annual “Women in Business” award”s reception. Every year, 914INC. Magazine’s Q4 issue highlights the most enterprising and successful businesswomen in Westchester County, and then honors them at a special luncheon where guests can meet the honorees and learn from their successes.
In early 2014 the Royal Regency Hotel broke ground on a major multi-million dollar renovation project to re-brand and transform the hotel. Major renovations have been made to the hotel’s lobby, Crystal ballroom, guest rooms, suites and reception areas. The hotel celebrated its official grand re-opening in October.
