V-tech Environmental Services Chosen as Blue Ribbon Winner by U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Staff members of V-tech Environmental Services were notified on Monday, March 2, 2009, that their company had been chosen as a Blue Ribbon winner and one of the top 56 companies in the nation in the running to be chosen as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Year. Blue Ribbon winners will be honored during the U.S. Chamber’s Small Business Summit in Washington, DC, May 11-13, 2009. “I can’t believe it!” said Polly Vann, General Manager. “I am truly humbled by this honor. Much of the credit for our success goes to my capable staff for the extraordinary effort and teamwork they exhibit every day, and for the professional level of service they provide to our customers. Our clients keep calling because they know they can depend on us, and that’s what makes us a successful small business.”

Seven regional winners will be chosen from the Blue Ribbon winners and announced on March 16, 2009. Small Business of the Year honors will then go to a finalist chosen from regional winners and will be announced at the Summit banquet sponsored by Sam’s Club. Vann’s company was chosen based on financial performance, business history, staff training, community involvement, customer service, and business planning.
