Founder/Publisher The Three Tomatoes
After a successful 25 year career in the New York City advertising agency business, Cheryl Benton launched 747 Marketing, a consulting firm which leverages digital marketing strategies to boost business success and also advises companies on how to market to women. Combining those skills, she founded The Three Tomatoes, a lifestyle web site and newsletter that celebrates women over the age of 40, a demographic that is often ignored by the media.
She is passionate about helping women and children succeed in life. She is currently President of the Metro NY Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women, the United Nations entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women. She also serves on the board of NYWA (New York Women’s Agenda). She was inducted into the Business Marketing Hall of Fame, and recently received the “Distinguished Alumni Award” from Adelphi University. She is a frequent speaker on marketing to women, and women’s global issues.
