Unanet Wins GovConnects Business Partner of the Year Award

Dulles, VA, October 9, 2017 

Unanet has been awarded the GovConnects Business Partner of the Year Award from the Howard County Chamber of Commerce. Unanet is the first recipient of this new award that is given to the company that has served both the Howard County Chamber of Commerce and the Howard County Federal Contracting Community in an extraordinary way.

The award was presented at the Chamber’s 2017 Awards for Chamber Excellence event at the Turf Valley Resort in Ellicott City.

"We have been supporters of the Howard County Chamber of Commerce for many years. Not only does Unanet have many customers and partners in the County, but the mission of the Chamber and the mission of Unanet are perfectly suited to one another. The Chamber does amazing work on behalf of its 700 members, so receiving this award is a high honor,” Unanet CEO Fran Craig, remarked.

Leonardo McClarty, CCE, President, Howard County Chamber of Commerce, commented, “The Howard County Chamber is fortunate to have members who are at the top of their respective professions. Unanet has become a major player in the Government Contracting arena, but the company has not placed such a premium on profits that it fails to support local business organizations with time and advice.”

Unanet would also like to congratulate the other award recipients from the event: 

  • Bita Dayhoff, Community Action Council of Howard County – Business Person of the Year
  • Pete Mangione, GM, Turf Valley Resort – Exemplar of the Year
  • Justin Bonner & Kasey Turner, Jailbreak Brewing Company – Entrepreneurs of the Year
  • BGE – Large Business of the Year
  • Commercial Insurance Managers, Inc. – Small Business of the Year
