Delaware chamber seeks Superstars in Business nominees by Aug. 8

July 24, 2019

The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce and its Small Business Alliance are looking for exceptional companies to apply for the 2019 Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business Awards.

The chamber launched its awards program in 1998 to recognize extraordinary small businesses and nonprofit organizations in Delaware. The winning companies have been heralded as models of small business excellence, commended for their success in such areas as strategic marketing, customer service, quality control and financial performance. They also excel as good stewards of the community, giving back and paying it forward through leadership and employee involvement. This year’s nominees could join the ranks of organizations like Promo Victory, Cover & Rossiter, Kuehne Company and Delaware Humane Association.

“It is humbling to win, and yet, I know our team is very deserving. This past year has been one of transition and transformation for us. Being honored with this award is validation that we are doing the right things to ensure that we are positioned to serve our clients well into the future,” said Marie Holliday, CPA, MBA, managing director of Cover & Rossiter, a 2018 Superstars in Business winner.
