Each year, one Vermont company is selected to be the Deane C. Davis Outstanding Business of the Year for meeting the highest standard of excellence through:
- Continued growth in the number of employees or sales
- Commitment of company resources to community projects
- Recognition of the environment as a natural and economic resource for Vermont
- Creation of a positive work environment for all employees
The Vermont Chamber of Commerce created the Deane C. Davis Award in 1990 to recognize a Vermont business that shows an outstanding history of sustained growth while displaying an acute awareness of what makes Vermont unique.
In a recent announcement about the top three finalists—Marathon Health, Union Mutual, and Vermont Creamery—Vermont Business Magazine wrote, “In showcasing the essence of business growth while maintaining a strong commitment to the wellbeing of employees and the community, Marathon Health has risen to the top and easily stands among the top three competitors for the Deane C. Davis Outstanding Business of the Year distinction.”
We are honored to be among the finalists for this prestigious award, and look forward to the final announcement at the Best of Business Awards on May 11.
