Business owners and professionals packed the room last Friday at the Best Western Gateway Grand in eager anticipation to see if their company won and/or to congratulate their fellow business colleagues in winning this year’s Business of the Year award. The Gainesville Chamber hosts this celebratory luncheon annually to recognize the best and brightest in area businesses.

MC Niko Clemmons, a WCJB TV20 reporter, launched the program by thanking sponsors and welcoming guests. Attendees were embraced by a collaborative theme rendered by puzzle pieces in table decor and stage display. Attendees heard from Rory Causseaux, Treasurer of the Gainesville Chamber Board of Directors; Susan Davenport, President and CEO of the Gainesville Chamber and Council for Economic Outreach; Brian Parks, President and CEO of SunTrust Bank in Jacksonville, FL; and Gil Levy, Chairman of the Gainesville Chamber Membership Task Force.

Also, thank you to 2015 Business of the Year vendors: 3G Video Production Services, Best Western Gateway Grand, Keith Watson Events, RA/Ven Audio Visual Solutions, StorterChilds/Yurlogo and Williams & Co. Events.

Be sure to thank these area business leaders for their contribution to building a stronger business community!
