On September 12, several team members of American Momentum Bank attended the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce’s 39th Annual Small Business of the Year Awards at the Straz Center in Tampa.
American Momentum Bank was a Diamond Sponsor of this year’s awards.
“American Momentum was proud to sponsor this event because we support small businesses and enjoy being a partner in their success,” said American Momentum’s Vice President/Relationship Manager Diane McKelvey. “This event celebrates local businesses and their accomplishments. They are our neighbors, colleagues, friends, and the lifeblood of our Tampa Bay community.”
McKelvey also served on the Small Business of the Year Awards Committee as a judge and as the Sponsorship Chair.
“I am passionate about giving back to our community, and it was an honor to serve as a judge on the SBOY Committee,” McKelvey said. “Taking on the role of Sponsorship Chair this year was also a great opportunity to work with our Sponsorship Committee and sponsors. We were successful and surpassed this year’s sponsorship goals, helping to contribute to the success of the event at the Straz Center.”
Several-hundred people attended the event, where Small Business Awards were presented in three categories based on the number of employees, and a fourth business category honored a startup company. An award was also presented to the Outstanding Small Business Leader of the Year.
Over the course of several months, nominated companies were evaluated on financial success, community involvement and ethical business practices.
