DC Group named Best in Business

On March 13th, DC Group received the “Best in Business” award from the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber’s annual award program recognizes companies contributing significantly to the success of the region, as well as non-profits and emerging businesses that have a positive social and economic impact. Jon Frank, who attended the awards luncheon with CFO Charlie Kramer and others, called the award a “nice nod from an important organization that does a lot to encourage and grow relationships among business leaders, government, non-profits and the community.”

The award ceremony was held at the Graves Hotel and hosted by Frank Vascellaro who quipped about surviving the “most traumatic event of 2014 – which was the winter of 2014.” Vascellaro conducted short interviews of the award winners (Jon Frank) in front of the sold-out banquet hall. A short video was also played to introduce the winning company; DC Group’s video featured sales executive Joanna Gagliardi.
