Think Dutchess Alliance for Business is proud to announce the winners of the 2021 Business Excellence Awards. Although originally scheduled as in-person event, out of an abundance of caution the event is going virtual with a video premiere on the Think Dutchess YouTube channel on Thursday, November 18, 2021.

The second virtual event will honor the following Dutchess County businesses:

“After a year that challenged our entire business community, our Business Excellence Awards winners proved that no matter the challenge, innovation, resilience and success are possible when businesses remain committed to their community roots,” says Sarah Lee, CEO of Think Dutchess. “Despite navigating an ever-changing business climate, these four businesses never lost sight of providing services far beyond their traditional product and service offerings. Their commitment to growth, consistent employment, development and better futures for our residents and Dutchess County are inspirational– and we are honored to celebrate them.”
