Today RME was named the winner of the 2015 French-American Business Award (FABA), sponsored by the French American Chamber of Commerce, New England Chapter (FACCNE) in Boston, to recognize impactful Franco-American businesses.
A blue-ribbon panel of judges this spring narrowed a New England-wide pool of candidates to seven finalists, and the audience at the Sonesta Hotel voted for this year’s honorees after hearing a brief presentation by each of the finalists.
“A French-American Business Award is the most prestigious honor that the FACCNE bestows on up-and-coming companies”, said FACCNE President, Mr. Patrick Bian. “We’re delighted by the caliber of the contenders for this year’s awards. It was not an easy choice.”
RME COO (and French citizen) Olivier Ceberio spearheaded RME’s competition efforts and commented, “We were pleased to participate in this edition of the FABA award as it is very much aligned with our current developments in Europe and we hope it will pave the way for future collaboration with French organizations”.
In the May 21st edition of the Boston Business Journal, Resolute Marine Energy was named one of ten Massachusetts companies “making waves” in the water technology sector. The BBJ also reported that in recognition of its leadership position in water technologies, Governor Charles Baker allotted $800,000 in the state’s budget to address some of its water challenges and help companies test their new technologies.
Alicia Barton, CEO of the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center said, "We think it's a smart bet for the state, and we have the building blocks to build a really leading global cluster in this area." MassCEC helps accelerate the success of clean energy technologies, companies and projects in the state.
RME CEO Bill Staby commented, “We’re honored to have been recognized by the leading business publication in New England as a leader in the water technology industry and we’re particularly pleased that Governor Baker has recognized that this sector plays an important role in the local economy.”
