People Biz, Inc. would like to congratulate our client Renee Schofield, owner of TSS, Inc. for receiving the SBA Alaska 2015 Small Business Person of the Year award. Renee’s award marks the first time since 1990 a person from Ketchikan was selected for the Small Business Person of the Year recognition in Alaska.
“Renee is credited for savvy sense that made a small town business grow regionally by helping business respond to a complicated market need: the mandated drug testing and safety certification requirements regulated through the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988.”
One of the key criteria for the prestigious SBA recognition is community interaction and contribution. Renee’s accomplishments providing a unique service that went beyond making profits helped her nomination shine. By being a generous contributor to local nonprofits and being generous with her knowledge, time and volunteerism, Renee has gone the extra mile providing leadership for her community.
Renee’s successful business along with her dedication to contributing to her community is what makes us want to celebrate and share her story with you. People Biz is honored to work with business owners like Renee, and we know this won’t be the last time she is recognized for her leadership in the industry.
