The BOB Awards, handed out every year by our friends at New Hampshire Business Review, recognize scores of businesses from around the state for how they conduct their business; it’s a measure of the best of the best.

So we are pleased to receive two awards this year for our efforts with the Sector Partnership Initiative and Expanding Global Trade.

“With 3,500 ballots cast for 2017 awards, the BOBs continue to be considered a standard of excellence in the New Hampshire business community,” said NHBR Editor Jeff Feingold.

On hand to accept the awards were Commissioner Rose; Carol Miller, our broadband technology director; and Michael Power, Office of Workforce Opportunity and Phil Przybyszewski, who coordinate the Sector Partnership Initiative.

Thank you for the honor!
