MANCHESTER, NH – Dick Anagnost, president of Anagnost Investments, was lauded Dec. 2, along with a program created through a partnership between Manchester Community College and four companies, at the 20th annual meeting of the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development.
As part of his annual awards, Commissioner Jeffrey Rose of the Department of Resources and Economic Development presented his MVP award to Anagnost for the many ways he contributes to strengthening the local and state economy.
Rose cited Anagnost’s many revitalization projects in Manchester, as well as his work as chairman of the state’s Workforce Innovation Board. Appointed in 2003, he is the longest serving board chairman in the country. Rose also praised Anagnost’s efforts in bringing a Job Corps Center to the state, which had been one of two states not to have one.
Rose’s Teamwork Award was presented to Manchester Community College, as well as Axenics of Nashua; GE Aviation of Hooksett; and Scotia Technology and Titeflex, both of Laconia. Working with the Division of Economic Development, the companies and MCC developed a tube fabrication and forming certificate program, establishing a workforce pipeline for the companies.
