The Griffin-Spalding County Chamber of Commerce honored our CEO Ben Johnson with the “Boss of the Year” award at their Spring Awards Luncheon earlier today. Kelly Smith, Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce introduced Ben, read nominations from Ben’s team here at Liberty, and presented the award. When asked for comment, Ben said “an entrepreneur is someone who works 100 hours a week to avoid working 40. I’m just trying to create a place where I would want to work myself, and do my best to treat everyone else like I would want to be treated.”
The winner of the award is chosen every year with the help of another county’s Chamber of Commerce, which reads and chooses from nominations submitted by employees working at the same company as the nominee.
We want to congratulate Ben on the honor, Liberty couldn’t ask for a better boss!
