Each year the community is asked to nominate local businesses who stand out above the rest in seven different categories. A group of volunteers judges the nominations based on innovation, customer satisfaction, industry leadership, community service and local, regional and national achievements. An individual is also chosen as the Business Advocate of the Year for the work they do in the community to support local businesses.
The winners for the 2017 Excellence in Business Awards include:
Business Advocate of the Year – Eileen Jennings, SVP and Area Loan Manager, Arvest Bank
Large Business – Williams Tractor
Small Business – Whytespyder
Minority & Women-Owned Business – Beautiful Lives Boutique

For the next year the winners will be featured in the Chamber offices on the Hall of Honor as well as spotlighted on the Chamber website and social media pages. Click here to learn more about the Excellence in Business Awards.
