What's new? Whether the industry is technology or construction, staffing or banking, the business climate is changing and moving quickly. Who is successful? What businesses are growing? How can your company leverage local business connections to build and grow? These are the questions of each business day, and certainly questions that get asked as many companies begin a new year.
The latest business news stories of the day — like those delivered on Hartford Business.com or weekly in print by the Hartford Business Journal — will tell you a lot about Central Connecticut and the direction in which its business communities are going. But there's often another untold story, one that more fully develops and makes companies special. Often it's about people and their personal accounts within a bustling company.
We believe that the pages that follow will help you discover some new opportunities, ideas and relationships. The third edition of the Business Profiles tells the stories of 30 different companies all located in our region. As you read their stories, written in their own words, you will find that some businesses are expanding into new products and services. Other companies are growing geographically. And many companies have been serving businesses for many years. There are new and unique aspects about the companies that make the business community strong.
The photographs also tell part of the story. Whether it is a modern building, a team activity, a company event, or a customer experience, the photographs will give you a sense of the business. The photographs will allow you to see a different angle. Each photograph has been carefully chosen to reflect elements of the "business personality."
What's new? I think that you will find several new opportunities for 2012 to help you and your business grow. As a national consumer campaign recommended this holiday season, do business with local businesses. We can all become stronger by helping each other.
