Biz X magazine NovDec 2022

Adventure is in the air for the Biz X Award Judges — from left: Justin Barker (consulting past Judge Sabrina DeMarco on the phone), Jeremy Renaud, Jason Kerluck (hanging on for dear life!), Mark Lefebvre, Chad Goulet and Miranda Underwood. The judging panel had their work cut out with 244 nominees in the 2022 awards program and reviewing information from nominators, submissions from nominees online, reviewing the voting poll results, consulting their own contacts and then assembling together for the final vote at a massive meeting at the Harbour House in Windsor. And as the results will prove in this edition, nothing clouds their judgment! PHOTO CREDITS: Individual Judge photos digitally merged into the background shot by Rod Denis.

Thank you to all our readers who participated to help find the best businesses, organizations, events and biz pros in Windsor, Essex County and Pelee Island.

The 25th annual Biz X Awards winners have now been revealed. To read the official rules, meet the Judging panel, and view all results (including a list of the nominees and write ups on the 24 winners) please turn to page 18 of our Nov/Dec issue . . . .

To quickly recap how winners are determined, the panel of Biz X Judges reviewed the nomination information submitted; the results of the voting poll, the company background information filled out online by nominees. Judges also research each nominee at their own discretion before meeting with the entire panel to cast their vote in a secret ballot for the eventual winner of each category on who would earn the coveted “pillar of success” Biz X Award.

The judging panel consists of local business professionals and industry experts. Judges do not know the actual winners until the release of the November/December edition.

The entire team of Biz X magazine wishes to congratulate each and every nominee on their success as in our eyes, you are all winners! Only the best get nominated! Keep up the great work!
