okc.BIZ presents Best of Business winners Presented by Comtech
Readers have voted and the 2014 Best of Business winners are chosen!
Each year through the okc.BIZ Best of Business program, the Oklahoma City metro recognizes businesses that beat expectations. Over the past year, readers voted for their most trusted business partners, vendors and clients in 25 diverse categories, including web design, architecture, construction, financial advisers and corporate law firms.
Now, okc.BIZ and Oklahoma Gazette present the results online at okc.BIZ and in the monthly Buzz on okc.BIZ section of Oklahoma Gazette. Each category listing names the Top 5 businesses voted by okc.BIZ readers, designating one overall winner that received the most votes.
“We are fortunate to have a wide variety of outstanding businesses in Oklahoma City, and it is the mission of the okc.BIZ readers’ poll to highlight those businesses that are the best of the best,” said Dave Rhea, General Manager of Tierra Media Group, which publishes okc.BIZ and Oklahoma Gazette. “Public recognition is a great way to let these companies know we appreciate the exemplary services and products they bring to the business community.”
