Isaac, Nichols win SBC honors

The Small Business Council of Rochester has honored two business owners as Business Persons of the Year at its annual awards ceremony.

The awards went to John Ford Nichols, president and CEO of construction company Nichols Team, and Raymond Isaac, president of Isaac Heating & Air Conditioning. The annual awards honor companies that show continued growth, innovation and giving back to the community.

Nichols won among businesses with fewer than 50 employees, and Isaac won in the larger company category. 

Candidates for the Business Person of the Year award are nominated by their peers, and a selection committee then reviews the nomination packages and selects finalists.
