John Nichols Named 2012 Rochester Business Person of the Year
Wow, you can’t imagine the pride I feel – not for myself alone – but for all of the extraordinary people who have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with me through the years. It was wonderful to share this special moment in time with my family and my Nichols Team family.
It seems counter-intuitive to be selected for an individual award when I am part of an organization with the word “Team” in it. I view the award as an affirmation of the way our entire Team has conducted themselves throughout the years. Their dedication to our culture of Integrity, Trust, Pride and Skill has inspired me to continue our commitment to always doing “the right thing.”
We are who we are not only because of our shared vision, but because we’ve had the privilege of serving great customers. Their trust and belief in Nichols Construction Team drives us to perform at our best.
I am grateful to the Rochester Business Alliance Small Business Council for the recognition they have bestowed upon our Organization. I accept it with pride on behalf of our Customers and my beloved Team.
(By the way, my wife Lisa – second from right – kept chuckling that they should change the name of the award because I’m not very small at all!)
