Boston – Kaplan Construction recently announced that it has been honored as a Massachusetts Family Business of the Year by the Northeastern University Center for Family Business. Kaplan also received a certificate of generational achievement in recognition of its success as a second-generation family business during the 12th annual Massachusetts Family Business Awards ceremony.

The Massachusetts Family Business Awards program was created to promote and highlight the accomplishments of Massachusetts-based, family-held businesses and entrepreneurs. The program annually presents awards to recognize family businesses whose policies and business practices have had a positive impact on the business and community.

For the last 12 years, recipients of the Massachusetts Family Business of the Year Awards have been selected by a panel of independent judges based on the following criteria: business success, positive business and family linkages, multi-generational family involvement, contributions to the community and industry, and innovative business practices or strategies.

Jane Kaplan Peck led the effort to have the company certified as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 2014. Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and women owned businesses provide ever increasing value to the Massachusetts economy, making up the state’s fastest growing business sector in the Commonwealth.
