r.k. Miles, Inc. receives award from the University of Vermont Grossman School of Business
r.k. Miles, Inc., an LMC member since 2006 and a third generation family-owned business, was awarded the 2020 University of Vermont (UVM) Grossman School of Business Multi-Generation Family Business Award this past October.
The UVM Grossman School of Business Family Business Awards recognize family-owned UVM alumni businesses that have demonstrated a commitment to creating sustainable practices through leadership and innovation. An independent panel of judges, comprised of past winners, UVM alumni, and local business owners, select winners based on four criteria: financial success; governance structures; contributions to the community and industry; and sustainable, innovative business practices or strategies.
“We are incredibly honored to have been nominated and chosen as this year’s recipient of UVM’s Grossman School of Business Multi-Generation Family Business Award,” said Joe Miles, President and owner of r.k. MILES. “This recognition is due in no small part, to the team behind the name. As generations before me set the foundation for our business, we understand that success doesn’t always come from grand strategies, but rather from the small individual contributions by our staff that happen day in and day out – acknowledging our customers by name and going the extra mile to make sure they get what they came for – that’s what sets us apart and makes r.k. MILES what it is today,” he added.
r.k. Miles has ten locations across the New England region and joins an elite group of 33 other businesses that have been presented with a UVM Grossman School of Business Family Business Award. The organization received the award during the 9th annual awards ceremony, held virtually this year due to the global pandemic.
