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 (  His business is based in Henryville, Pa., and he is the father of three young children.


Kimes will receive the grand prize of $5,000 in cash and cleaning service for a year (valued at $2,400).  This is his blog post entry that explains how he balances raising his children and running his company with his wife and business partner. 


We will issue the news release soon which will have more information. 


Congratulations Eric!
