We are so excited to announce that The Brothers that just do Gutters are the winners of The Orange County Chamber of Commerce 2015 Medium Business of the Year Award! Ken and Ryan will be honored in October by the Chamber for the success of their business, their commitment and service to the community, and their contributions to the quality of life in our area.
With nearly 2,000 members, The Orange County Chamber of Commerce is one of the largest in New York State, and the leading advocate for business in The Hudson Valley area. The mission of the Orange County Chamber is to lead the way creating and supporting an environment in which business will succeed and the quality of life is enhanced. Their manta is “Buy local, give local, build local, fly local … together, we will succeed.”
This think local attitude is one of the reasons why The Brothers that just do Gutters is being acknowledged by the Chamber as a business of the year. We are committed to supporting local businesses and charities. Some of these local organization include, The Sparrow’s Nest, BOCES, and The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie. We fully support and believe in the mission of The Sparrow’s Nest to provide and deliver home cooked meals to those too sick to do this on their own. We will be participating in and sponsoring a Superhero 5K run hosted by them this month.
Each year Ryan spends a day working with the students of BOCES conducting mock interviews, and giving them helpful feedback. He also shares with them some insider business tips, as well as, some of his life experiences in the world of business. Working with these students and helping to sculpt the minds of young business men and women is something we are proud to be a part of.
In 2013, The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie was chosen as The Brothers that just do Gutters “Lend a Like” charity where we donated money to the home. In May, Ken and Ryan Parsons were given a special invitation to meet with the children discussing interview tactics and job skills. We also took part in their 5K Run for Home event this August as both sponsors and participants.
Our Community Rewards Program is something we launched a few months ago that we feel is the ultimate way to say thank you to our followers, clients, and the local community. As part of this rewards program, we give away prizes to our subscribers and social media followers each week, as a way to give back.
Ken and Ryan, and The Brothers that just do Gutters’ brand contribute their success largely to focusing primarily on the clients and meeting their needs, as well as strong community involvement. As members of The Orange County Chamber of Commerce, and supporters of all that they do for small local businesses, we are honored and grateful to be receiving this award.
