MassEcon, the state’s private sector partner in promoting business growth in Massachusetts, recently announced its 14th Annual Team Massachusetts Economic Impact Award winners, recognizing 15 companies for their outstanding contributions to the Massachusetts economy.
The companies were selected on the basis of job growth, facility expansion, investment, and community involvement since January 1, 2016. The winners are being honored at an Impact Awards luncheon on November 21, 2017 at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel, with Citizens Bank as presenting sponsor.
The winning companies (listed below) were selected after site visits and a reception with their competitors and judges at Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP.
Massachusetts Housing and Economic Development Secretary Jay Ash 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 Executive Director Susan Houston said, “MassEcon is thrilled to celebrate these companies for their commitment to expanding in Massachusetts. 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, Massachusetts President Jerry Sargent said, “This is well earned recognition of companies committed to the long term growth and success of the Massachusetts economy. Citizens Bank is pleased to partner with MassEcon to celebrate the economic impact of those who are investing in new infrastructure, creating jobs and helping our citizens reach their potential.”
