“Anna Maria Villa served as our (contract) executive director for the RIDA (Riverhead Industrial Development Agency).  She got up to speed on the needs of the Agency very quickly and was creative in her approach to both the normal operations needs and the create touch thinking that was needed.  She was engaged in very challenging financial times for banks, business owners and government, and she demonstrated the abilities needed to introduce the Agency to many more contacts and to support the (volunteer) citizen board.  I appreciated the diligence she brought to the assignment and enjoyed working with Anna Maria.” – Hank Boerner, Chairman and CEO – The Governance and Accountability Institute, Inc.
