Entrepreneur of the Year

During EPIC, OzSBI's Small Business Week celebration on May 2nd, the Entrepreneur of the Year was recognized. Thirteen businesses were nominated for this prestigious award that recognizes an entrepreneur, who has demonstrated strong business growth, innovative business practices, and community contributions and involvement.  This year's winner was Chad Sisco of Paintmaster's Collision and Repair. Chad's business has increased tremendously over the last 5 years, as he has expanded from collision repair and parts, to include U-Haul rental, tire sales, used auto sales, and oil and lube services. Chad recently moved his business from Rover to a new 6500 sf building in Alton. Congratulating Chad is Michael Hoff, OzSBI Board Member and Chad's mentor.
