The Small Business Person of the Year is selected based on growth in sales, increase in number of employees, financial strength, innovativeness of product or service, and contributions to community-oriented projects.

This award is the latest in a wonderful run of recognition for the company. In 2012 Karri was chosen as a finalist for Ernst and Young’s National Entrepreneurial Winning Women program and Illumination was awarded Woman-Owned Business of the Year Runner Up in Cincinnati.

In March of 2013, Illumination Research was recognized locally when the Cincinnati Chamber selected it as a finalist for the city’s Small Business of the Year awards. Winners will be announced at the annual Small Business Excellence Awards luncheon in May. (http://www.cincinnatichamber.com/sbea)
