Kurgan named small business champion of the year

Posted

Englewood entrepreneur Patricia Kurgan is the 2011 NFIB/Colorado Small Business Champion of the Year.

The honor was conferred upon her by the Colorado Leadership Council of the National Federation of Independent Business. Each year, NFIB/Colorado singles out a small business owner for special recognition and honors him or her with the prestigious Small Business Champion of the Year award. This is the eighth year America's leading small-business association has recognized small-business owners who go the extra mile for their fellow entrepreneurs.

A 30-year veteran of the transportation industry, Kurgan owns Astro Logistics, Inc. a global transportation enterprise. She is also serving a two-year term on the state's Pay Equity Commission, representing the voice of small business. "Since joining NFIB, Patti Kurgan has been one of my key go-to people for public policy activism," said Tony Gagliardi, Colorado state director for NFIB.

"Advocating for small businesses is essential," Kurgan said. "Small businesses experience the complexities of running an organization every day. These owners know best what works for their business and their employees, not government mandates, which only hinder innovation and productivity."
