The annual Family and Private Business awards recognize and celebrate local businesses who demonstrate exceptional achievements of our 10 Best Practices of Family and Private Businesses.  Celebrate extraordinary businesses, volunteers and rising leaders. Nominate any family or private Cincinnati-NKY region business. Awards provide businesses with opportunities to showcase their successes and the impact they are making in our community. 

Celebrate with Us

Each September, the Goering Center recognizes and celebrates businesses, and Rising Leaders, who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in one or more of our 10 Best Practices of Successful Family and Private Businesses, thereby positively impacting their organizations and communities. We have celebrated extraordinary businesses, volunteers, and rising leaders over the past many years, as referenced on our Historical Honorees page, and it is one of our most enjoyable, powerful, and proud annual events.
