Respected SmartCeo.com Recognizes Philadelphia-Area Companies
NEST is celebrated among a distinguished list of thirty of Philadelphia’s top family businesses. This year’s honorees collectively generate more than $3.6 billion in annual revenue and employ over 26,000 individuals. Winners will be profiled in the May/June issue of Philadelphia SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony on May 6, 2015 at the Ballroom at the Ben.
Corporate leadership is committed to keeping the company headquarters in south Jersey and “Dad (Chairman Bob Almond) made sure that as a family business, we always gave back to local charities and helped the community in which we live,” said CEO Rob Almond, Jr. “Since we now employ almost 170 people locally, we know they contribute to the economy and their local causes as well.”
The Family Business Awards program honors family businesses that make up the backbone of the American economy. More than two thirds of privately held businesses in the U.S. are family-owned firms. They are driving the local and national economy and fueling job growth but are often overshadowed by large public organizations. SmartCEO is honoring and celebrating the family businesses who are successful, growing and moving America forward.
