| Posted by | Categories: Grow, Work

Congratulations to the fourteen companies being honored for their outstanding contributions to the state’s economy at the 13th annual Massachusetts Economic Impact Awards this fall.

MassEcon, the state’s private sector partner in promoting business growth in Massachusetts, is presenting the awards at a luncheon on November 22, 2016 at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel. Citizens Bank is the presenting sponsor.

The companies were selected on the basis of job growth, facility expansion, investment, and community involvement since January 1, 2015, according to MassEcon Executive Director Susan Houston. The winners were chosen by a panel of judges who made site visits to various companies and held a reception for all of the finalists at Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP.

Jay Ash, Secretary of Housing and Economic Development, said, “Massachusetts is fortunate to have an involved, diverse and generous business community, and we are happy to recognize these exceptional leaders today. Maintaining strong relationships between public and private sectors is crucial to long term economic growth, and providing community access to job opportunities across the Commonwealth.”

“MassEcon is thrilled to celebrate these companies for their commitment to expanding in Massachusetts,” said Houston. “Their investment and job growth stimulates benefits throughout the Commonwealth, and we are excited to publicly honor the achievements of these outstanding corporate citizens.”

“Citizens Bank is committed to strengthening the communities we serve and are proud to help celebrate those who share in that commitment,” said Jerry Sargent, President, Citizens Bank, Massachusetts. “The Impact Awards recognize and congratulate diverse businesses that are thriving because they have invested in Massachusetts and created jobs for its citizens.”
