Last night, the entire ACF team headed to the TPepin Hospitality Center in Tampa to attend the 2011 Tampa Bay Business Journal Up and Comers Awards ceremony. It was a fantastic night filled with great people, good food and lots of laughs!
Our president, Adam Ford (follow him on Twitter@theadamford) was nominated for an Up and Comer Award, so we were all excited to show our support! The nomination was a great achievement in a year of many successes. We are all so proud of Adam!
The day started off at the office where we made signs to cheer Adam on.
We then all headed down to the event for happy hour and networking.
The networking hour was followed by dinner and speeches from the event sponsors.
Then it was time to announce the finalists! Way to go Adam!
The night ended with finding out who was inducted into the 2011 “Hall of Fame”. Congratulations to Jonathan Bowman and Derrick Brooks (yes, that Derrick Brooks), the Up and Comers award winners for this year!
The Up and Comers Awards Ceremony was definitely a night the ACF team will never forget! We’d like to thank the Tampa Bay Business Journal and all of the wonderful sponsors for hosting such an awesome event! Congratulations to all the nominees. We hope you had as much fun as we did!
