Chamber recognizes 4 in business awards

The Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce has selected two businesses, an individual and a group for recognition this year for its 2012 Business of the Year Awards:

  • BND Commercial Real Estate, which employs 30, was chosen as Small Business of the Year. The 8-year-old partnership has played a key role in developing Fort Wayne’s downtown with projects including Harrison Square, the Anthony Wayne condos, and the Lutheran Sports Complex.
  • General Motors Co., which employs more than 3,600 locally, received the Large Business of the Year Award. The automaker has had a substantial effect on the community by recently bringing 700 new families to the area, supporting non-profits and making the truck assembly plant landfill-free.
  • Arthur Snyder, president of Indiana Tech, was named CEO of the Year at Monday’s ceremony. He is known as “a great motivator and someone people look up to,” the Chamber said in its announcement. Indiana Tech will open the region’s first law school next year.
  • The Chamber also created the Community Impact Award this year to honor contributions made by Col. David Augustine and the 122nd Fighter Wing. The men and women were recognized for their service to the country and the community, including the recent Fort Wayne Air Show.
