"The chamber's business excellence awards recognize both business success and community involvement," said Chris Johnston, President of the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce. "Year after year we can see the close relationship between these two factors in all of our finalists, regardless of what category they appear in. My congratulations go out to each nominee – they are all making a difference in our community."
"Being able to provide this type of public recognition is one of the great honours of being involved with the Fredericton chamber," added CEO Krista Ross. "Because the nominees are so consistently strong, our selection committee struggles every year with choosing both the finalists and eventual winners for all of the categories. As city and the province increasingly recognize and celebrate entrepreneurship as the backbone of our economy, these types of awards take on even greater weight in the current economic environment."
