Last week, McDonough had the opportunity to attend the NB Export Awards, organized by Opportunities New Brunswick, to recognize the success of NB companies in various export markets. This was the first in person event in two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
McDonough was considered for the Exporter of the Year (under $5M) and Emerging Exporter of the Year Awards. The Exporter of the Year award recognizes companies for excellence in export through a significant increase in export sales over previous years, along with market diversification, new product development and innovation, while the Emerging Exporter of the Year recognizing new entrants to the market, and considers export sales, level of difficulty associated with entering the market, and unique approaches to enter new markets.
Our Controller, Katie Lovely, attended the awards, along with 36 representatives from other businesses across the province.
"I was proud to be able to represent McDonough at the 2022 NB Export Awards. There were so many inspiring and resilient businesses represented – all candidates in attendance have managed to accomplish so much during a global pandemic. Being present with all these companies was a huge accomplishment for Team McDonough – being new to NB, it is important to get our name out there and be recognized for all the hard work our team has done, and continues to do."
