The U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced Knoxville-based Strata-G as one of three finalists for its annual Dream Big Awards. The Awards, presented by MetLife, celebrate the achievements of small businesses and honor their contributions to America’s economic growth.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. Their grit, determination, and generosity give real meaning to the term free enterprise. When small businesses thrive, our communities prosper, and that’s good for everyone,” said Tom Sullivan, U.S. Chamber vice president of small business policy. “The U.S. Chamber is proud to honor small businesses who inspire themselves and others to dream big through their actions, contributions, and leadership.”

“We are honored by our selection as one of three Dream Big Award finalists,” said Strata-G President, Dan Hurst. “It’s a testament to our professional staff of more than 200 scientists, engineers, health and safety experts, and project managers who practice our core values of integrity, service, and quality each day. We appreciate the U.S. Chamber’s recognition.”

Award winners will be announced at the Dream Big Awards Gala on Wednesday, October 16, in Washington, D.C., at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Strata-G is a team of engineers, scientists, safety professionals and project managers dedicated to the responsible care of client-entrusted resources in the environmental, energy, defense, utilities and infrastructure sectors.
