The Business of the Year award is one of the Chamber’s most prestigious awards celebrating excellence in a business’ industry and in their community. This award, sponsored by Index Packaging, recognizes a Chamber member who has demonstrated leadership and involvement for the betterment of the business community and the greater Rochester area. At the Chamber’s Annual Awards Celebration held on Wednesday evening, May 24, 2023, at The Oaks Grandview Ballroom, the Chamber was pleased to present the 2023 Business of the Year award to Meredith Village Savings Bank.
MVSB is a values-based organization which holds strong to their seven core values that are reflective of their primary mission to enhance the welfare, well- being and vitality of the community and its members: accountability, mutuality, excellence, respect, integrity, teamwork, and stewardship.
Amanda Martineau of Monarch School of New England says, “MVSB’s values of caring, commitment to the community, and creating collaborative, supportive partnerships are evident in all aspects of the work that they do.”
“MVSB has gone above and beyond supporting our local nonprofits, businesses and community development projects and we are proud to present them with this award,” said Laura Ring, Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President & CEO. “In addition to the bank’s investment, those employed at our local branch have become very involved with several organizations in the community. We thank them for their impact and contributions to the greater Rochester area.”
Since breaking ground on their newest branch office in Rochester in 2021, MVSB has already developed many close partnerships with local businesses, individuals and families to help support growth opportunities that strengthen the Rochester community.
Miles Cook, President of Rochester Motorsports, Inc. says, “MVSB epitomizes the kind of banking relationship that people in Rochester value and will continue to be an important banking partner for the Rochester community.”
For these reasons, the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce was proud to name Meredith Village Savings Bank as its 2023 Business of the Year.
