CEO of Trenton Technology receives Businessman of the Year award
WHITESBORO, N.Y. (WKTV) - At a Noon luncheon on Friday, the CEO of a Utica business received a very distinguished award.
The award was presented by not only Congressman Richard Hanna, but also the head of the United States Chamber of Commerce.
It was a packed house on Friday at Harts Hill Inn in Whitesboro on Friday as the Mohawk Valley Chamber of Commerce honored Albert Mazloom, the CEO of Trenton Technology.
Trenton Technology is an electronics design and manufacturing plant on Broad Street in the City of Utica. The company makes single board computers and mother-boards, similar products that GE used to manufacture in the very same building on Broad Street some decades ago.
Some of those same workers who used to work at GE are now among the 170 workers at Trenton Technology, which is headed up by Mazloom, whose employees say is not only a good businessman, but a complete joy to work for.
"Albert Mazloom is an entrepreneur that understands and loves his employees, understands and loves the business," said Trenton Technology Vice President Al Wheeler. "He gets involved in many local issues. He was involved with St. Elizabeth Hospital when they built the ER, he was the driving engine behind that."
Albert Mazloom received the Mohawk Valley Chamber of Commerce 'Businessman of the Year' award Friday afternoon at the luncheon, which also served as the Chamber's Annual Membership Meeting.
