The awards were envisioned as a way to celebrate and recognize the successes of New England’s many family-owned businesses. From those just starting out to those who have farmed the same land for more than a hundred years, the awards recognize the grit and determination necessary to launch and build a business with family, and to keep that legacy going through subsequent generations.
We have some amazing family businesses to recognize at the 2019 FBA Awards!
The applications are in and the judges have made their decisions. The judging was difficult, but we have the finalists for this year’s awards, and they are listed below in alphabetical order. The winners will be revealed at the dinner and celebration on Thursday, May 16th at the Needham Sheraton.
These outstanding families and business professionals know how to work together to grow, achieve their goals, and give back to their communities. The companies represent the backbone of our local economy and their ability to survive and thrive through multiple generations is a testament to their hard work and dedication. Our finalists represent business large and small, from first generation with under $1MM in sales to those with a national presence and $300MM in revenue.
Join us to honor and congratulate all of these worthy family businesses.
