“We are extremely honored to be receiving the 2013 Business of the Year Award.” said Elm Grove Companies COO Chris Schleyer. “We would not have been able to reach this company milestone without the continued efforts by the entire Elm Grove team. We envision strong and persistent growth in the future ahead of us.”
