2013 Business Excellence Awards
They are the heart of the Granite State's economy, but the people who own and operate them are often overlooked and don't receive the kind of public recognition they deserve.
Recognizing the state's small-business owners and operators is the purpose of NHBR's Business Excellence Awards -- they are a celebration of those small-business people whose imagination, industriousness and innovation have not only helped their companies to grow and thrive, but to give back as well -- to their communities and the entire state.

2013 EVENT PHOTOS
On Oct. 22, more than 250 people gathered at Manchester Country Club for NHBR's 11th annual Business Excellence Awards, which recognize the success and achievements of the owners and operators of small businesses in the Granite State. Emcee for the night was WMUR's Erin Fehlau. Ten business owners were recognized. The event was sponsored by Citizens Bank, Bank of New Hampshire, Devine Millimet, Merrimack Street Volvo, and the Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire. A portion of the ticket sales were donated to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of New Hampshire to support their work to give abused and neglected children a voice in the court system.
