CLAREMONT, N.H., June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New Hampshire-based Red River, a leading federal information technology (IT) services provider, announced today it has received Business of the Year award from the Greater Claremont Chamber of Commerce.
The Business of the Year award recognizes those companies that not only bring economic growth and stability to the region, but also those that actively participate in community service endeavors. Some of Red River's community support activities include local charitable drives, community service projects during our Annual National Sales Meeting, sponsorship of local sports teams, being an active Chamber member, and establishing the Red River Technology Foundation.
"We are proud to have been recognized by the Greater Claremont Chamber of Commerce as the Business of the Year. At Red River, we strive to be more than just a local employer. We are an active member of the Claremont community, and we provide new opportunities for individuals and community growth," said Rick Bolduc, CEO of Red River. "We have been fortunate to do business in this robust region, full of qualified professionals, creative thinkers, and hard working citizens. Claremont is not just our corporate headquarters – it's where we work, where we reside, and where we raise our families."
"Red River, through the Red River Technology Foundation, has been serving local students and schools in the Claremont area since they moved the company in 2009," said Nancy Merrill of the City of Claremont. "Their ongoing leadership and commitment to students and residents is noteworthy."
"Hard work and honesty fuels Red River's central mission and it invigorates and drives their commitment to the greater Claremont community," said Valerie Mahar, vice president of River Valley Community College. "The company contributes to and promotes the economic growth, stability and improvement of Claremont and our surrounding communities, and they model what good corporate citizenship means to a small, rural community."
"If all the businesses in our communities invested in our adolescents, our future, with the commitment that Red River does, our teens would be very well equipped to become young adults," Barbara Farnsworth, executive director of Second Growth, wrote in a letter of recommendation for the company. "Red River is a quiet partner in the battle to help adolescents make healthy choices, build resiliency skills, and become courageous, informed peer leaders."
