Shleppers President Jason Friedland Honored With Award As One Of The County’s “Top 40 Under 40″ In June 11 Ceremony
Top New York mover Shleppers Moving & Storage is proud to announce that The Business Council of Westchester is honoring Shleppers company President Jason Friedland with a 2009 “Rising Stars – Top 40 under 40″ award.
In a competition that took place among hundreds of business and industry professionals serving Westchester County in 2009, the Westchester “Rising Stars Top 40 Under 40″ are chosen on an annual basis as those who have achieved success within their fields even before the landmark age of 40. In its annual “40 Under 40″ awards, the organization honors those who exhibit leadership, exceed expectations, and make significant contributions to their fields as members of the Westchester business community.
Shleppers’ Friedland was chosen as one of this year’s honorees following his achievements in leading Shleppers’ continued successes and expansions in 2009 — even in a challenging economy — as well as for the company’s continued dedication to community support, through its activities for such organizations as The March of Dimes, Catholic Charities, JCC Maccabi Games, The Bottomless Closet, The Central Park Conservancy, and more.
“It’s very flattering to be honored by such a prestigious organization,” comments Jason Friedland. “And I’m lucky to be able to lead Shleppers as a company that cares so much about its customers and its part in the community, and which demonstrates that commitment on a day to day basis. I’m delighted to have been recognized by The Business Council of Westchester, and appreciate the award more than I can say.” Friedland also adds that despite the award, it has not been a solo effort. “At Shleppers, I work with a team of incredible individuals, and first among them is Allen Golan, who works every single day to make sure we deliver a great product. Without him, and many other talented associates at Shleppers, I would not have achieved this award.”
As one of New York’s top movers for over three decades, Shleppers has a strong presence in Westchester County, and has increased its commercial moving services as well as residential support throughout the county in 2009. In the past two years alone, Shleppers’ revenue has increased by 60%, with a market share that continues to grow — along with its continued commitment to serving the people and community around them.
