Toni D'Antonio of Shake the Tree Productions Honored As Norwalk’s Local Business Person Of The Year
The largest online referral network for small businesses, Alignable.com is announcing the results of its national search for leaders who’ve gone above and beyond guiding peers and supporting entire communities as they strive to recover.
Today, Alignable’s network has chosen Toni D'Antonio of Shake the Tree Productions, LLC, as Norwalk’s Business Person Of The Year!
In all, nearly 4,000 small business owners were elected by their peers to be their Local Business People Of The Year across the U.S. and Canada.
During this year's contest, 226,000+ votes were cast and 51,000+ testimonials were posted praising thousands of local leaders for helping their peers and communities through a year with many challenges, not the least of which included skyrocketing inflation and labor shortages.
Still, it was a year built on hope and connection, and that is how Toni D'Antonio, CEO of Shake the Tree Productions, LLC, sees it.
Giving Is The Glue Holding Us Together
“Our community really shows that you get back what you give,” said D'Antonio. “The challenges we've faced over the past two years have showed how important it is to offer support to our peers, who were all too often struggling to keep their businesses afloat. While I’m so excited to be chosen for this award, it says more about our community as a whole. It also reinforces my desire to push toward a full recovery for all of us here in Norwalk as soon as possible.”
Driving Recognition Is Key
“This has been a fun and rewarding contest to watch unfold,” said Alignable’s President & Co-Founder Venkat Krishnamurthy. “Local business owners are the heart and soul of their communities and they ought to get way more recognition for all they do. Friendly competition aside, this contest generated some incredible peer testimonials...showing exactly why small business owners are stronger together.”
