The winners were announced at the 11th annual Massachusetts Family Business of the Year Awards program on June 14, 2017, at the East Village on Northeastern University’s Boston Campus. PSD won for the Medium Firms category.


The Massachusetts Family Business Awards program, hosted by Northeastern University Center for Family Business, promotes and highlights the great achievements of Massachusetts-based, family-held businesses and entrepreneurs. Each year, family businesses across the state are recognized in five different categories ranging from small businesses to community involvement. The recipients are selected by a panel of independent judges based on business success, positive business and family linkages, multi-generational family involvement, contributions to the community and industry, and innovative business practices or strategies. PSD was this year's recipient of the Massachusetts Family Business of the Year Award in the Medium Firms category. 

PSD President & CEO, Aaron Polhemus was present to accept the award on behalf of the company. “It is an honor to have our business recognized with this award,” says Polhemus. “Working alongside a dedicated and hardworking team makes this possible.”
