Local Business Marketing

Linda Rey

Local business marketing is a special thing. A Local Business is more than just a provider of goods or services, it’s part of the community. Many local small business owners who enjoyed tremendous success for decades found themselves struggling when technology made the marketplace global for everyone.

Meet Linda Rey, Insurance Agent and Principal at family owned Rey Insurance Agency, Inc. in Sleepy Hollow, NY. As part of her local business marketing efforts, Linda uses social media with REAL results! And she will share with us how she did it and the difference she has seen in her business as a result.

Linda has worked in the insurance profession since 1985 where she began her career working in the family business. She’s followed in her father’s footsteps, Francisco Rey, who started in the business in 1965.  Francisco, first-generation American, was also born and raised in Sleepy Hollow after his parents emigrated from Spain in 1939. Her sister, Laura Rey Iannarelli, is also in the business and started in 1995.

Rey Insurance Agency seeks to provide comprehensive insurance solutions through a consultative approach to not only protect assets but also offer peace of mind.  They translate the values of a family-owned and operated business to create a comfortable and trustworthy venue for businesses, individuals and families.

Linda was named 2010 Outstanding Member of the Year by the Sleepy Hollow Chamber of Commerce for her assistance in starting and growing their networking events.

Linda has been named the 2006 Emerging Leader for the American Association of University Woman (AAUW) Westchester Branch where she also chartered the first Business Interest Group, “Busine$$ 2 Busine$$ Networking”.

Linda was honored as the 2005 Business Woman of the Year by the Westchester Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Rey Insurance has been featured in Fortune Small Business, The Insurance Journal, Journal News, Westchester Business Journal, Westchester Magazine’s 914Inc as well as various community publications including The Examiner & Hudson Independent.
