Alliant’s President, Terry Douglas, was awarded the 2016 Tennessee Small Business Person of the Year Award by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
SBA presents Small Business Person of the Year awards at the State level (from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam) and the National level to small business owners who represent the nation’s strong entrepreneurial spirit and rich diversity.
According to Terry, “While it’s an honor to be recognized, these kinds of awards are solely a reflection on the outstanding people who do the work of Alliant day in and day out, and on our valued clients who give us the opportunity to deliver service excellence in support of their requirements. Without either one of those two essential ingredients, recipients of these kinds of awards are no more or less distinguishable than anyone else. So great thanks is due to the people who make Alliant what it is.”
Terry was also recognized by the SBA Tennessee District Office who presented him with an award on Thursday, May 5, 2016 in Nashville at the SBA District Office.
