CareStar Is A Goering Center Private Business Award Finalist!

by Oct 6, 2017General

CareStar is proud to be recognized as one of the Cincinnati Region’s Most Distinguished Private Businesses, being named a Finalist for the 18th Annual Goering Center Family & Private Business Awards

CareStar, Inc. is the recipient of the 2017 Goering Center Family and Private Business Finalist Award for Private Businesses with more than 101 employees.  This annual honor is bestowed upon only two companies. This exemplifies what family and private business is and should be.

This annual recognition program, in its 18th year, honors Cincinnati regional businesses that exemplify the best in family and private business practices.  Each year over 500 businesses apply for these awards.  CareStar was evaluated by an independent panel of judges who reviewed applications as they relate to the Goering Center’s 10 Best Practices, business success and their positive impact on the community.

After first being named one of only 75 Semi-Finalists, CareStar was then selected as a Finalist for Private Businesses with more than 101 employees.   In addition, JTM Food Group was named to the Goering Center Hall of Fame and Mary Miller, JANCOA, was titled the 2017 Baldwin Award Winner for dedication and service to the Goering Center.

CareStar is one of an estimated 4,500 family and private businesses in the Cincinnati region; the Goering Center has 340 of these businesses as active members with a goal of 400 members by the end of 2018.  Membership is not a prerequisite for the awards or for nomination, as fewer than half of the semi-finalists are current Goering Center members.

The Goering Center, initiated in 1989, is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to family and private business. The Goering Center’s mission is to nurture and educate family and private businesses to drive a vibrant economy.  The center is affiliated with the University of Cincinnati and the University of Cincinnati’s Carl H. Lindner College of Business.
