KABA recently hosted the Ovation Awards program, our annual salute to business and entrepreneurship. This is one of my favorite events of the year. It is a great opportunity to recognize, celebrate, and thank the companies and people that drive Kenosha County’s economic growth and success.
Large, small, young, experienced, service sector, goods producing . . . . We had a bit of everything as we recognized seven companies and one individual entrepreneur. While this was a fairly diverse line-up (including advanced manufacturers, a real estate developer, and a Northwoods League baseball club), a few common themes emerged throughout the evening as we learned more about the honorees and their keys to success:
A willingness to take calculated risks;
Teams comprised of caring, capable and committed individuals; and
A community with a supportive business environment and can-do attitude.
Hats off to this year’s line-up of honorees and to all of the individuals and organizations in our community that contribute to their success.
