2021 Business Excellence Awards
Honoring Our Region’s Top Businesses
For over 20 years, the Business Excellence Awards celebration has attracted hundreds of prominent business leaders to recognize the people and companies that demonstrate unique vision, innovation and achievement in support of our region’s economy. Each year, our award winners prove the impact our business community has on making Dutchess County a great place to live, work, and visit. These companies exemplify excellence, innovation, collaboration and service and inspire us all to continue to strive for excellence. They showcase the impact and vital role that businesses large and small play in the overall economic development of Dutchess County. Our award winners are outstanding representatives of the economic diversity in our region’s business community.
Award winners are honored for their creativity, vitality, stability and contribution to Dutchess County growth. Winners have demonstrated commitment to the advancement of the business community an impact on the lives of our citizens by creating jobs and increasing the tax base. Over the years, the scope of the Excellence Awards has grown to acknowledge leaders in innovation and significant individual contributions towards Dutchess County’s economic resilience and success.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to move our in-person Business Excellence Awards scheduled for October 28, 2021 to a virtual event. The event will now premiere on Thursday, November 18, 2021 on our YouTube channel.

Our first Virtual Business Excellence Awards were held to showcase the fortitude of just a few of the businesses that came together to provide the necessary support, services and connections we all needed during an incredibly difficult year.
