Diversified Communications, Portland Maine’s Business of the Year

Diversified Communications will accept the Business of the Year Award from the city of Portland this Thursday, November 17 at Ocean Gateway. The Portland Development Corporation (PDC) selected Diversified Communications as this year’s award recipient for being one of the largest employers in downtown Portland and engaged in the local community.

Annually, the PDC presents three awards to deserving companies and institutions. The awards include Economic Achievement, Business of the Year and Small Business of the Year. This year’s other award recipients include the Maine College of Art (MECA) for the Economic Achievement Award and Maine Standard Biofuels for Small Business of the Year Award.

“We are honored to be recognized and in such good company,” said Diversified’s President and CEO, Ted Wirth. “Our neighbors at MECA are the cornerstone of creativity and vitality in our city and Standard Biofuels is helping to eliminate waste and provide clean energy options for all of us.”
