Abstract

Profiles of the recipients of the 2008 Mainebiz "Business Leaders of the Year" awards. Ford Reiche, 54, president of Safe Handling in Auburn and Pittsburg, Pa., won the Large Company Business Leader award. He cuts emissions and transport costs for clients by shipping dry material and mixing the final product in-state and by being the state's biggest importer of biodiesel fuel. Charles "Chip" Morrison, 62, president of the Androscoggin County Chamber of Commerce in Lewiston, won the Nonprofit Business Leader award. His enthusiasm and kinetic personality have energized the chamber and made the Lewiston-Auburn area a beacon of positivism in the state. Kent Peterson, 55, CEO of Fluid Imaging Technologies in Yarmouth, won the Small Company Business Leader award. As more ports test for invasive species in ships' ballast water, his company's FlowCAM equipment shortens the process of analysis and can be customized and applied to a range of products. He is noted for his positive and balanced personality.
