Drum roll please (click here for sound effect)… we here on the Verizon small business team are excited to announce the grand prize winner of Verizon’s Hardest Working Small Biz Dad contest. First, thank you to all the men who entered this contest. And thank you all for your patience as we narrowed down a winner. We enjoyed your stories and were in awe of the way you are able to care for your kids, family, your business and more.
Congratulations to Philadelphia’s Eric Kimes who is Verizon’s Hardest Working Small Biz Dad Contest Winner.
David Wasserman director of small business product management for Verizon, said, “It certainly wasn’t easy choosing the hardest working dad. We congratulate Eric and commend all the men from across the country who entered the contest. The best part of this contest was the feedback we got from our customers on how they use Verizon’s products and services to help grow their businesses.
Eric Kimes is the owner of a Web design and hosting agency called Webleaps (www.webleaps.com). His business is based in Henryville, Pa., and he is the father of three young children.
