Manchester, NH TFMoran’s COO, Dylan Cruess was selected as one of New Hampshire’s 200 Most Influential Business Leaders by New Hampshire Business Review. The “New Hampshire 200” Inaugural Reception was held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester to recognize the prominent business leaders.
Cruess was honored to be named one of the 200 chosen by New Hampshire Business Review’s editors after a year-long research initiative was conducted for the state’s most influential business leaders in the private sector across major industries. In choosing the individuals, the editors collected suggestions and nominations from industry contacts throughout the state to determine the individuals who have had the greatest impact on New Hampshire’s economy, business climate and quality of life. The business leaders selected have a real influence within their professions, industries and communities, along with making an important and lasting imprint where they live and work.
All the selected individuals were asked to complete a questionnaire for the New Hampshire 200 inaugural publication. When asked what the most important business lesson learned, Cruess said, “There are about two degrees of separation in the business community. It’s vitally important, even in the most challenging circumstances, that you treat people with respect and fairness. Building and maintaining a great reputation and fostering good relationships are crucial.”
His advice to those in the same industry is to make a difference in the communities where you live and work. And, to be involved in both industry-related associations, as well as non-profit organizations as an investment that not only benefits your business but creates a socially conscious culture in your organization.
Cruess joined TFMoran in 2001 after graduating from Bates College earning a degree in Economics. In 2013 he became an owner and COO of TFMoran when the company was transferred to four senior employees.
Cruess is very involved in the local community and is currently on the board of directors for numerous organizations including the Greater Manchester Chamber, March of Dimes and Business Committee for the Arts.
