Hampton Roads Chamber members, Virginia Eye Consultants and the Phoenix Group, are among the U.S. Chamber of Commerce 2012 Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winners! Last year, Virginia Eye Consultants was chosen as the Hampton Roads Chamber’s Small Business of the Year and the Phoenix Group was a “Top 10 to Watch” honoree. Both of these companies are being recognized as successful small businesses that have contributed to the vibrancy of American free enterprise and have been leaders in job creation and economic growth.
On March 1, Thomas Donohue, U.S. Chamber president and CEO, said, "Today, the [U.S.] Chamber celebrates the positive impact made by these companies and is proud to recognize them for their outstanding achievements."
All Blue Ribbon recipients will be recognized in May during America's Small Business Summit in Washington D.C., where an overall winner will be announced and will receive one complimentary registration to attend the summit, courtesy of Sam's Club®.
