Just in time for DiamondTome’s 20th anniversary next year, Brenda Acosta, president of Altair Instruments—the parent company of DiamondTome— has been named entrepreneur of the year. Acosta was awarded the title at the Los Angeles Business Journal’s recent Women’s Council and Awards last month. The annual event honors the achievements made by the powerful women of Los Angeles who continue to make differences in their communities.

“It is an honor to be among the most accomplished and distinguished female leaders,” Acosta says. Other winners of the day-long event included Gillian Zucker of the LA Clippers, Christine Simmons from the LA Sparks, and Olympic gold medalist Jordyn Wieber, among others. The women spent the day at the JW Marriott Los Angeles to network and listen to keynote speeches, panels, and workshops. Topics discussed include women in male dominated work environments, self-worth, negotiating tactics, technology, scaling your business, and more.

Acosta, though honored as entrepreneur of the year at this event, isn’t shy about giving back to other women in the workforce. DiamondTome was a sponsor of American Spa’s first annual Women in Wellness Leadership Conference and provided guests with souvenir water bottles for the day-long event.
