Granite Staters pick FairPoint Communications in New Hampshire Business Review poll
MANCHESTER, N.H. (February 22, 2011) – FairPoint Communications has been selected as a winner in New Hampshire Business Review’s 2011 BOB Awards, which honor the “Best of Business” in New Hampshire in more than 80 categories. FairPoint was honored in a statewide readers’ survey in the telecommunications category.
The “Best of Business” Awards annual competition, also known as “The BOBs,” is conducted by the New Hampshire Business Review (NHBR) via an online poll of readers and visitors to the paper’s website. According to the NHBR, a record number of votes were recorded for the competition this year.
“With more than 2,900 ballots cast for the 2011 Awards, the BOBs have really become a standard of excellence in New Hampshire’s business community,” said Jeff Feingold, editor of NHBR. “If other business owners have named your business a BOB business, it really says something about the high caliber of the company you’re running.”
The award is a huge honor for FairPoint.
“I speak for the nearly 1,400 FairPoint employees in the Granite State in telling you we are thrilled to be selected as the best telecommunications provider,” said Teresa Rosenberger, state president in New Hampshire for FairPoint. “Our employees work hard every day to be your preferred telecommunications provider and we certainly appreciate your confidence in us. Thank you to all who voted for FairPoint and congratulations to the other businesses that have been selected.”
All of the winners will be honored at a celebration on Thursday, March 10, 2011, at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord.
