Walking into the office this morning, it was hard to miss the “Congratulations” balloon bouquet and the makeshift banner reading “Thanks for all your hard work! We won!”
We soon found out what all the excitement was about: Dynamic Language was honored by Seattle Business Magazine with the 2012 Small Family Business of the Year award. All nominations were reviewed by an expert panel and announced at the Family Business Awards banquet on Nov. 29.
Keynote speaker Michael Garvey of Saltchuk Resources both entertained and inspired the audience at Seattle's Bell Harbor Convention Center. Attendees agreed that they wished for a pen and paper to capture Garvey's "Nine Points of Wisdom" that capped his speech. But luckily for them, those Nine Points can now be found on the Seattle Business website.
With the fast growth of our company in recent years, it’s exciting to be able to share this recognition as a team—a hard-working and dedicated team!
Dynamic Language was started in 1985 by the husband and wife team of Ricardo and Maria Antezana. The latter is currently CEO of the company. The two have led Dynamic admirably, and have done so more recently with the help of the next generation: Sandy Dupleich and Rick Antezana, as executive vice presidents.
“This award is great evidence of just how much everyone here cares, not just about our clients and contractors, and the work that we do,” Rick wrote in an email to in-house staff. “But more importantly, we care about supporting each other, and sharing the work and now, the recognition!”
We are just so proud and wanted to take the time to thank all of our staff, our contractors and our clients for making each day exciting and different from the last!
