Every year the Chamber honors a philanthropic company, a successful local business and one exceptional volunteer. Chamber members and their employees are encouraged to submit nominations of companies or individuals they would like to see recognized.
The three awards each have different criteria. The Corporate Business of the Year recognizes companies for local charitable efforts (2016 winner was Zengeler Cleaners). The Northbrook Business of the Year honors a business that has experienced considerable growth and offers outstanding customer service (2016 winner was Bell Flavors & Fragrances). The Volunteer of the Year recognizes an individual who has contributed to furthering the Chamber’s goals (2016 winner was Paul Kaufmann, Shred Spot).
