Manchester, NH – TFMoran’s Chief
Operating Officer, Dylan Cruess was selected as one of New Hampshire’s 200 Most
Influential Business Leaders by New
Hampshire Business Review. The “New Hampshire 200” Inaugural Reception was held
on October 30, 2019 at the DoubleTree
by Hilton Manchester
to recognize the prominent business leaders.
Cruess was honored to be named one of the 200 chosen by New Hampshire Business
Review’s editors after a year-long research initiative was conducted for the
state’s most influential business leaders in the private sector across major
industries. In choosing the individuals, the editors collected suggestions and
nominations from industry contacts throughout the state to determine the
individuals who have had the greatest impact on New Hampshire’s economy,
business climate and quality of life. The business leaders selected have a real
influence within their professions, industries and communities, along with
making an important and lasting imprint where they live and work.
All the selected individuals were asked to complete a questionnaire for the New
Hampshire 200 inaugural publication. When asked what the most important
business lesson learned, Cruess stated, “There are about two degrees of
separation in the business community. It’s vitally important, even in the most
challenging circumstances, that you treat people with respect and fairness.
Building and maintaining a great reputation and fostering good relationships
are crucial.” His advice to those in the same industry is to make a difference
in the communities where you live and work. And, to be involved in both
industry-related associations, as well as non-profit organizations as an
investment that not only benefits your business but creates a socially
conscious culture in your organization.
Mr. Cruess joined TFMoran, Inc. in 2001 after graduating from Bates College earning a
degree in Economics. In 2013 he became an owner and Chief Operating Officer of
TFMoran when the company was transferred to four senior employees. Mr. Cruess is
very involved in the local community and is currently on the board of directors
for numerous organizations including the Greater Manchester Chamber, March of
Dimes and Business Committee for the Arts.
