Grand Rapids chamber names EPIC award winners
The Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce has named the winners of its seventh-annual EPIC Awards.
The awards “salute” the region’s entrepreneurial, progressive, innovative and collaborative, or EPIC, contributors.
Twenty EPIC Awards finalists were named in September in seven categories. The area businesses and individuals selected as finalists are contributing to a “thriving region.”
The winners were announced last week at the 2016 EPIC Awards at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.
“These are the people and organizations who are at the core of a remarkable business community by the ways they innovate, collaborate, grow and impact others, helping to create a thriving city,” said Rick Baker, president and CEO, Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce.
