To participate, please have your President, CEO or Managing Partner answer the question below.* Word count: 100 words. Your firm’s name will be placed above the entry in bold type, so you don’t need to include it in your 100 words of text.

In addition to the 100 words of text, please submit a high-resolution JPEG picture (300 dpi or better) of your President, CEO or Managing Partner. We would also welcome a photo(s) of teamwork at your company with a descriptive caption.

The deadline for submissions is 3:00 P.M. EST on Thursday, May 19, 2016.

All submissions must be from your company’s highest-ranking executive.

*Winners will be announced at the CIANJ/COMMERCE Best Practices Conference on Sept. 13, 2016 at Nanina’s In The Park in Belleville. A panel of judges will evaluate all entries. This year’s panel includes: Dennis Bone, director of the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship at Montclair State University; Rob Ffield, motivational speaker and former two-time Top Gun instructor; Bill Hanson, president of NAI James E. Hanson; Debbie Hart, president and CEO of BioNJ; Dean Paranicas, president of the Healthcare Institute of New Jersey; and Siamack Shojai, dean of the Cotsakos College of Business at William Paterson University.
