Chamber & Economic Development of the Rutland Region is proud to announce our annual award recipients for 2020, who will be recognized at the annual meeting.

Heritage Family Credit Union President and CEO Matt Levandowski is the recipient of the Business Leader of the Year award. Levandowski has called the Rutland Region home for almost 30 years ? 29 of which have been spent as part of the Heritage Family Credit Union team. Under his leadership, Heritage Family Credit Union has routinely been recognized as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Vermont.

Nancy Greenwood, sales associate at Watson Realty & Associates PLC, is the recipient of the Community Leader of the Year award. Greenwood served as co-chair for the Relay for Life Cancer Fundraising Walk from 2005-2017. She is an active member of Rutland City Rotary and volunteers with the Feline Connection. When the COVID-19 crisis hit, Greenwood established the Help Vermont LIGHT UP the World Facebook group and encouraged others to put out a star or their holiday lights to lift the spirit of all and to thank essential workers.

This year?s recipient of the Innovator of the Year award is VT Terps. Founded in 2019, by David, Sam, and Greg Markowski, Dan Querrey, Mark Atwood, and Jim Gilmore, the organization produces organic CBD products that are locally grown, processed, and sold. Currently they harvest from over 100 acres in Vermont and oversee the entire process from preparation, planting, maintaining, and harvesting.  Recently the group designed and built a drying system unique to VT Terps. 

Tickets are $25 per vehicle and will include a $25 voucher for food and beverage at the event. Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, September 15th for members and Thursday, September 17th for the general public.

We will be giving away two pairs of tickets from Boston to Rutland from Annual Meeting sponsor Cape Air, and a corporate movie night at the drive-in at the Vermont State Fairgrounds from The Paramount Theatre. This is an opportunity to show your employees or your best customers your appreciation for their loyalty with a private screening of a movie of your choosing at the Rutland location.
