Gilbert Design Build Honored with Business of the Year Award

The Manatee Chamber of Commerce has named Gilbert Design Build as the 2018 Small Business of the Year. Gilbert Design Build was selected from 114 nominations and 33 finalists to receive the 2018 honors. According to the Manatee Chamber of Commerce, this year marks the 39th celebration of small businesses and non-profit organizations that have “stellar customer service, dedicated employees, business growth, support of our community and (do) things right.”

“This event tops my list of favorites,” said Manatee Chamber President Jacki Dezelski. “We have the opportunity to recognize businesses that go above and beyond, those businesses that strengthen our community, and those that make our region such a special place to live.”

“We are both honored and humbled by this recognition,” says Gilbert Design Build President, Ernest Gilbert. Gilbert adds, “every employee at Gilbert Design Build is dedicated to excellence in everything we do along with exceptional customer service.”

“Small businesses are a vital sector of our economy. Every day small business owners wake up, work hard, and give their all. When small businesses thrive, our communities thrive, and that’s good for everyone,” said Tom Sullivan, U.S. Chamber vice president of small business policy. “The U.S. Chamber is proud to honor small businesses across the country who embody the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship and significantly contribute to our country’s growth and prosperity.”
