Neil Fesette, broker and owner of Fesette Realty, has been named the 2014 Joe Bornstein Businessperson of the Year by the North Country Chamber of Commerce. He was recognized and presented with the award at the Chamber’s annual awards dinner last Friday.
“It is an honor to receive an award that has gone to so many influential business and community leaders in the past,” Fesette said. “I have such high regard for the people who have won this award.”
He is thrilled to receive an award named after Joe Bornstein, a long-time business leader. “He was such an active community servant,” Fesette said, adding that community service has been a big part of his life.
