Maine Coast Kitchen Design has been named one of 18 finalists for the 2014 Maine Family Business Awards, an annual program put on by the Institute for Family-Owned Business in partnership with the law firm Verrill Dana.
The Institute, a non-profit organization now in its 20th year, is dedicated to supporting family-owned businesses, which represent about 80 percent of all businesses in Maine. Through consulting, seminars, workshops, and networking, the Institute assists family-owned firms in navigating the unique managerial challenges associated with operating and sustaining a successful family enterprise.
Maine Family Business Award winners are nominated from within or outside their firms and selected by a panel of judges based upon business success, positive business and family linkages, contributions to the community and industry, family participation, work environment, communication, and innovative business practices or strategies.
The Awards will take place on May 19th at 5:30 at the Sable Oaks Marriott, South Portland. The program includes a cocktail reception, announcement of the award winners, and a panel discussion moderated by Awards’ host Gregg Lagerquist, news co-anchor at WGME-TV 13.
As a first-generation family business, we’re honored to have been nominated, and would love to see some friendly faces at the event! Tickets can be purchased online through the Institute for Family-Owned Business at www.fambusiness.org.
