On October 4 Steve Bolduc, President of the Bangor Region Development Alliance, led a delegation attending the TOP 101 Companies Awards in Saint John, New Brunswick. “TOP 101” is a business networking event recognizing the fastest growing and best managed companies in Atlantic Canada. Companies are ranked on their growth, innovation, and customer focus.
Several hundred of the leading business executives in Atlantic Canada networked with the BRDA delegation at the awards reception, hosted by Progress magazine, the City of Saint John and Mayor Ivan Court, and Enterprise Saint John. The group from Bangor had the opportunity to discuss cross-border business opportunities in the energy, transportation, and telecommunications fields. Steve Bolduc said, “The TOP 101 event is a fantastic opportunity to meet with the companies leading Atlantic Canada’s growth and innovation. The proximity and similarities between the two areas make it imperative that we communicate, cooperate and conduct business with each other.”
Other members of the BRDA group were Sno Berry of Berry Dunn, Perry Newman of the Atlantica Group, Rob Frank of WBRC Architects Engineers, Dan McKay of Eaton Peabody, Mike Camire of Hollywood Slots, Jeff Bennett of the Maine International Trade Center, D'arcy Main-Boyington and Nicole Gogan of the City of Brewer, Tanya Pereira of the City of Bangor, and Dave Milan of the Town of Bucksport.
