Beverly, MA Connolly Brothers Inc. has been recognized at the Family Business Association’s Annual Awards.
The Family Business Awards program was created as a way to celebrate and recognize the successes of New England’s many family-owned businesses. From those just starting out, to those who have farmed the same land for more than a hundred years, the awards recognize the grit and determination necessary to launch and build a business with family, and to keep that legacy going through subsequent generations. The companies selected represent the backbone of the local economy and their ability to survive and thrive through multiple generations is a testament to their hard work and dedication. The finalists represent businesses large and small, from first generation with under $1 million in sales to those with a national presence and $300 million in revenue.
“Our family has been in the construction business since 1880. We are one of the few companies to successfully make it to five generations of family leadership, and all of us are just as involved in client projects as the original founders were when they started the business,” said Jay Connolly, vice president at Connolly Brothers. “We take great pride in our work, and to be recognized as a leader in family business is extremely gratifying and rewarding.”
