Garner IT is proud to be the recipient of the 2016 Entrepreneurship Award at the Bay County Chamber of Commerce Industry Appreciation Celebration on September 22nd!
This month long celebration shines a spotlight on companies that help diversify Bay County’s economy. During the event, Governor Rick Scott also recognized this achievement.
Here’s what our President, Randall Garner, had to say about receiving this award:
Congratulations to all of the other award recipients!
I’m feeling really thankful this morning!
First of all, I’d like to thank God. Jesus tells us in the Gospel that with Him “all things are possible.” “All things” is mind-blowing for a simple guy like me, but we’ll give Him all the Glory.
Next, I’d like to thank the Bay County Chamber of Commerce for this award. You don’t have to look very far to see the results of the hard work from Carol and her wonderful team in their efforts to make Bay County a great place to live, work, and play.
I am thankful for our clients for giving us the opportunity to help their businesses thrive by serving their IT needs. When I take a step back and see the important companies on our client list and the critical services they provide to Bay County and surrounding areas, I am truly humbled by them allowing my team to work with them and help their businesses grow.
Speaking of my team, I have to thank them as none of this is possible without them. They come to work every day looking for ways to improve our business, improve themselves as individuals, and with a true desire to serve our clients.
When my wife Julie and I started this company a few years back, it was more than just a paycheck for us. We set a goal of helping Bay County compete on a global level, and we believe technology is a vital tool to achieve that goal. The previous year’s recipients of this Entrepreneurship award are also technology companies, a fact I think supports my belief.
Accepting this award, to me, confirms we are headed in the right direction.
In closing, on behalf of the team at Garner IT, I again would like to thank everyone involved with this award. May God bless you all and may God bless Bay County.
