Macomb Business Awards nominations are in, tickets on sale now

Online nominations for a Macomb Business Award opened in November.  By the deadline of Dec. 9, a total of 53 companies and organizations were nominated.

Ranging from companies just getting started on their journey to success to long-standing institutions with deep roots in the community, each nomination provided a description of how the nominee fit into one of six categories:

  • Champion of Workforce Development
  • Corporate Citizen
  • Diversification Leader
  • Efficiency Expert
  • Model of OneMacomb
  • Startup Business to Watch

Next, the nominations will be reviewed by our panel of judges.  For 2017, we thank the following for agreeing to review and score each nomination:

  • David E. Corba, Dean of Business and Information Technology for Macomb Community College
  • Gene Lovell, President of First State Bank
  • Jeannie Parent, Publisher for Digital First Media
