FACCNE’s 15th FAB Awards promote merit in innovation by recognizing companies who have made extraordinary contributions to the development of the French-American business community in New England. The six finalists presented their companies to the audience in a 90 second pitch. Attendees voted to determine the winner for each category of the competition.

The runner-up finalists competing were MatchUpBox, AMA and iXBlue.

In his speech, Patrick Bian, FACCNE’s President, thanked the three former Presidents: Marie Landel (1995-1998), Maurice Gervais (1998-2012), Francois Ducroux (2012-2015). Bian also thanked all FACCNE sponsors, members and partners for their support, trust and contribution over the 30 past years. A gift was presented to Maurice as FACCNE’s President Emeritus. 

Over 150 attendees celebrated this important milestone amid a warm and entertaining atmosphere of networking, dinner, raffle and silent auction.
