*In-Person Event*

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, and its Small Business Council affiliate, are pleased to present the 39th Annual Business Person of the Year awards.  This event has evolved into one of the premier networking and business recognition events in the Greater Rochester region. The Business Person of the Year will be recognized on Thursday, July 14, 2022 at Nazareth College Callahan Theatre.

The program recognizes small business leaders who have demonstrated success in both civic and professional areas, specifically in the areas of growth, leadership, achievement, and community service. Candidates are nominated by their peers and an independent committee reviews applications and selects finalists in two categories: 

  • (i) Businesses with 50 employees or more
  • (ii) Businesses with fewer than 50 employees. 

One winner is chosen annually to receive the Award in each category. The Business Person of the Year awards program celebrates the ultimate recipients in each of their categories.
