The Minnesota Family Business Awards are dedicated to recognizing outstanding Minnesota-based family businesses and promoting the considerable value family businesses bring to the state's economy and quality of life. Nearly 50 of Minnesota’s premier family businesses applied for the recognition.
The Minnesota Family Business Awards selection committee evaluated applications based on areas of business success, family involvement and governance, community participation and succession planning. The Emerging Award recognizes a family business beginning the process of developing a solid foundation and infrastructure with the goal of becoming a legacy business that has thrived and transitioned through two or more generations of active family participation and governance.
The management team and staff at Warners’ Stellian are extremely honored to be recognized as outstanding among the state’s family businesses, which bring so much value to our economy and communities.
“We want to perpetuate the family values our father, Jim Warner, has taught us through his own life: humility, integrity, gratitude and compassion,” said Jeff Warner, president. “Our dad’s values have brought us success both as a family and as a business.”
Gov. Tim Pawlenty earlier this month declared October to be “Family Business Awareness Month.” In the proclamation, he recognized family businesses as “critical to the success of our state and national economy” and noted their ability to “enhance our communities by providing stable, trustworthy services.”
