Online Job Search Company from Virginia is National Small Business of the Year
Date:4/22/2008

State winners from Indiana, South Carolina and Illinois are Runners-Up

WASHINGTON, April 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A young lawyer who recognized a business niche when a friend had trouble finding an internship was today named National Small Business Person of the Year for turning his idea into a multi-million dollar Web site.

The announcement was made during ceremonies at the U.S. Small Business Administration's celebration of National Small Business Week 2008.

"Shawn Boyer is a perfect example of the creativity and inspiration it takes to become a highly successful entrepreneur in America today," said SBA Administrator Steve Preston. "He identified an unmet need and filled it, and today, barely eight years later, his company, SnagAJob.com, has become a hugely successful site for posting and finding hourly and part-time jobs, connecting millions of registered job seekers with active job postings.

"In doing so, Shawn demonstrated the qualities that make small businesses such a powerful force in the American economy, and in their communities," Preston said.

First runner-up is Angela R. Timm, founder and CEO of Cottage Garden, Inc., in Bainbridge, Ind. Two entrepreneurs tied for second runner-up: Deborah Moore, founder and CEO of AccuStat EMR of Myrtle Beach, S.C., and George Burciaga, founder and CEO of smarTECHS.net, of Chicago, Ill.

The National Small Business Person of the Year and runners-up were selected from among the 53 state small business winners, including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam, who are being honored this week in Washington, D.C, as part of National Small Business Week. The awards were announced at today's national Awards Luncheon, sponsored by Sam's Club at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

The top winner, Shawn Boyer, 35, was working as a transactional attorney for a Washington, D.C., law firm when a friend asked him to online to help look for a summer internship.
