Business Person of the Year Award

As part of its mission to promote good business practices, the Chamber presents an annual award to the member who consistently demonstrates business excellence, vision, innovation, leadership and community spirit. The process involves the entire business community and the winner is honored at a reception in April.

To begin the selection process, all Pleasantville businesses are invited to submit one nomination for their choice of Pleasantville Business Person of the Year. In the second step of the process, Chamber members have the opportunity to select the winner from among the top contenders.


Pictured below, Chamber president, Bill Flooks, and Mayor of Pleasantville, Peter Scherer, congratulate Annette Colasuonna, owner of the Lil' Chocolate Shopp, 15 Washington Avenue, at the reception for 2015 Business Person of the Year held at Trattoria 160.
