New Jersey Business magazine announced its 2021 Awards for Excellence. Our own Vicent Vicari, Regional Director of the NJSBDC at Ramapo College of NJ (serving Bergen County), was selected for improving the quality of life in New Jersey in outstanding ways! The Awards of Excellence are powered by NJBIA, honoring select individuals who demonstrate leadership and passion while achieving business success.
The summary of Mr. Vicari’s Award for Excellence is listed below:
Vincent Vicari has made it his business to turn entrepreneurial dreams into reality. As Regional Director of the New Jersey Small Business Development Center (NJSBDC) at Ramapo College, he works with current and aspiring business owners to help them create successful businesses in New Jersey. After working in such industries as retail management, sales, food service, higher education, and consulting, Vicari joined the NJSBDC in 2008, helping New Jersey business owners bounce back from the financial crash, Superstorm Sandy, and the COVID-19 pandemic through his organization’s Economic Recovery Task Force Initiative. Vicari is also known for his work with veterans, women, and minorities, but perhaps his strongest passion lies in helping immigrants. Inspired by his grandfather, who came to the US from Italy in 1917, he has partnered with organizations like the American Muslim Union, Irish Business Organization of New York, the United Nations Association, and South Korean Consulate to help people from all backgrounds achieve the American Dream.
Vince, we are extremely proud to have you on the team! Thank you for all you do! Congratulations!! 🙂
