Harris Packaging named Small Business of the Year

By the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce

Harris Packaging Corporation won in the 51-150 employee category, and was selected from a field of 83 nominees, 38 applicants and 12 finalists. Each finalist was judged by a panel of Fort Worth Chamber business owners and professionals, some of them past award winners. Top entrepreneurial students from Texas Christian University's Neeley School of Business were also among the judges.

"This year was one of the most competitive we have seen, both in the quality and quantity of applicants," said Jeff Meisner, chairman of the Chamber's Small Business Council and founder/CEO of Skyline DFW Exhibits, winner of the award in 2007. "The fact that these companies are thriving in spite of a difficult economy bodes extremely well for the future of small business in Tarrant County."

Criteria for the award are business growth and performance, sound business strategies and practices, customer service strategies, business challenges, unique and innovative approaches, and community involvement.
