Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber member Creating & Managing Wealth was named the Southwest/South Central Regional Finalist by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The prestigious DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Award recognizes a company’s success, innovation and contributions to economic growth and free enterprise.  Seven regional finalists including Creating & Managing Wealth were selected from among the 100 Blue Ribbon Small Business Award winners.  These businesses stood out as highly successful enterprises with strong, meaningful ties to their customers and communities.

Three other Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber members were originally selected as Blue Ribbon Small Business Award winners in February, including DHD Films, Express Employment Professionals and Irving Cares.

“The Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber is proud Creating & Managing Wealth was chosen as a Regional Finalist by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce,” Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber’s COO Don Williams said. “Christina Winters Gears and her team work hard to provide innovative services and they dream big!”

In the last eight years, 22 chamber-member businesses were honored with the Blue Ribbon Small Business Award including two regional finalists.

Creating & Managing Wealth and the other Blue Ribbon winners will be honored at the 12th annual America’s Small Business Summit in Washington, D.C. June 13 – 15. During the summit, one finalist will be named and receive $10,000.
