In a surprise announcement at the 21st Annual Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business Awards Luncheon, the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce awarded the esteemed Gilman Bowl to E. Thomas (Thom) Harvey, III. Mr. Harvey accepted the award with his family, colleagues and fellow small business leaders in attendance.
The Gilman Bowl was established as a tribute to small business leadership. It is named in memory of Marvin S. Gilman, who served as an exemplary leader and a paragon of small business in Delaware. The identity of the recipient of the Gilman Bowl was held confidential until its presentation at the awards luncheon.
“Since the beginning, I’ve gone into work every day with the mindset that we, as a company, are not perfect and can always look for ways to be better,” said Mr. Harvey upon accepting the award. “I wouldn’t be standing up here today if it wasn’t for the team behind me.”
