Plano has been a great place to grow our business.
Plano, TX (PRWEB) August 13, 2009
The Plano Chamber of Commerce announced today that Duncan/Day, a Plano based advertising firm, will receive this year's Fred Moses Minority Business Development award. Governor Rick Perry will present the award to Duncan/Day at The Best of Plano awards ceremony this September.
"Receiving this award is one of the greatest honors I have had both personally and professionally," said Creative Director and Managing Partner, Stacey Day. "Plano has been a great place to grow our business."
Duncan/Day, a certified women-owned business in north Dallas for over 23 years, works with both local and national clientele in various industries.
"We have won many advertising awards over the years, but this one is especially important because it represents the hard work of minorities and women-owned businesses," said COO and Managing Partner, Leslie Duncan Blake.
The Fred Moses Minority Business Development Award was created under this name in 2005. Prior to that, the award was presented as part of Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week, a national program providing regional recognition to key players in minority business development. Fred Moses, a long time Plano businessman and former Chamber Board Chairman, was a major player in MED Week and the award was renamed in his honor in 2005.
The Best of Plano awards are given to Plano businesses and individuals that show outstanding performance both professionally and in the community. Other awards presented at the ceremony include the Athena award given to the top businesswoman, Small Business Owner of the Year, Business Executive of the Year and recognition to the top firefighter, policeman and teacher.
