We were extremely thrilled to award Wes and Cindy Dove with the Business Person of the Year Award for 2022.

When describing a successful business person, many different characteristics come to mind. Winners are risk-takers. They're ready and willing to try new things, and will usually lead the pack in breaking new ground. They have great strengths in making decisions. They reason things through, do their homework, ask others for feedback when necessary, and make their decisions based on gathering good information. Working hand in hand as a husband and wife duo, Wes and Cindy have created a network of successful leaders throughout our community. Their hard-work and dedication is commendable and deserves the highest recognition.

From all of us here at Harrisonburg-Rockingham Chamber of Commerce and everyone in the Valley, thank you Wes and Cindy for your continuous dedication to the future leaders of our community, and the hard work that you express daily. Join us in celebrating and congratulating them!

Huge THANK YOU to Appeal Production for creating this video!
