Rochester, NY 
David Scalen, Vice President of Regional Distributors, Inc., is a finalist for the Small Business Council of Rochester’s 2017 Business Person of the Year Award. The annual award is presented by the Small Business Council of Rochester (SBC), an affiliate of the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, to recognize exceptional business leaders who have demonstrated significant contributions to their companies in the areas of growth, leadership, achievement and community service. The award is one of the highest honors given to a business leader in the Rochester Region. For many past winners, this recognition has vaulted their companies to new levels of success, delivering increased local market awareness and further establishing them as leaders in their field.

The SBC Business Person of the Year Award is presented in two categories: leaders of businesses with fewer than 50 employees and leaders of businesses with 50 or more employees. David is a 2017 finalist in the 50 or more employees categories. He was also a finalist in 2015 for the fewer than 50 employees category and is the first business person in the history of the award to have been a finalist in both categories.

Scalen, the other honored finalists, and approximately 900 local business leaders attended the gala luncheon on October 24, 2017 at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center where Steve Carl from Operation Brain Freeze (over 50 employees category) and Traci Adolph from Samson Fuel (under 50 employees category) were named winners of the award. The annual award event has become a highly anticipated, premier networking opportunity to celebrate Rochester business leaders that are helping the community thrive and is inspiring other small- and medium-size businesses to do great things within the community. Local community and business members joined the SBC in recognizing the Rochester area’s top businesses and their respective leaders, while promoting Rochester business community as a whole.

"In my 15 years as President of our company, we have gone through many chemical and paper supply vendors. I wish we had found Regional from day one. Their extraordinary level of expertise and honesty is the best in the business. The product lines they carry have helped us keep our costs down and employees and customers beyond satisfied. If we ever have an issue, I know they are a quick call away and they have been able to solve so many of our problems - from training to reprogramming machines. Most companies can deliver the product and then slack on the services, but Regional does an exceptional job on both. They are always coming up with new ways to reduce our costs in terms of pricing and product mix. I have highly recommended Regional to numerous hotels and restaurants and will continue to do so because I truly believe in their company and know that they believe in us.”
