The Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce celebrated its 5th annual BBJ magazine’s “People You Should Know” awards tonight, honoring 31 local individuals including Eric Witczak of Nicolet National Bank in the Banking Industry.
These honorees – and the February/March 2010 issue of the BBJ magazine – were unveiled at a reception hosted at the Swan Club at Legends in De Pere.
“If Eric Witczak is on your board, you can guarantee things will get done,” said Jody Weyers, volunteer and communications director, for the American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter. “As vice chair for the American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter he is a great role model and leader and we are very proud to have him recognized for his accomplishments by the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce.
This year’s awards, entitled “20 + 10 People You Should Know in 2010,” honored 21 individuals (due to a tie) who have more than 10 years of experience in their respective industries and have made a significant impact in their fields. The awards also honored 10 individuals with 10 or fewer years of experience in their respective industries or fields who have made a significant impact in their fields. All honorees met criteria for which the BBJ “People You Should Know” awards are known, including accomplishments/contributions in their respective industries; spirit, drive, ambition, innovativeness and creativity; employment at Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce members; and living or working in Brown County.
“I’m pleased to celebrate the 5th anniversary of our BBJ magazine’s ‘People You Should Know’ by honoring some of the mainstays in our community,” said Paul Jadin, president, Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce. “These individuals – all of whom have made a significant mark in their respective fields – play a significant role in making life ‘Better on the Bay.’ To all of them, I say, ‘Congratulations.’”
