What are the Chesters?

The Inaugural Westchester Digital Summit had two goals: To educate and empower executives and businesses on all things digital marketing. A few years later, the results are in. Westchester is turning in to a hub for digital marketing success.

Everyone likes recognition. So on May 14, 2015 we recognized two businesses who are doing it best in our back yard. From pizzeria to PR the Chesters are a symbol of excellence in Digital Marketing.
