Cam Brensinger, founder and CEO of NEMO, an award-winning designer of outdoor gear and accessories that are built to improve the experience of adventure, has been recognized with the New Hampshire Business Excellence Award from New Hampshire Business Review. In its 17th year, the Awards, presented by Citizens Bank, recognize the imagination, industriousness, innovation and achievements of business owners and operators in New Hampshire.
The Business Excellence Awards were awarded in eight different categories, honoring individuals from New Hampshire-based businesses with less than 100 employees and those with more than 100 employees in the following categories:
- Business & Professional Services
- Consumer Services
- Financial Services
- Real Estate & Construction
Brensinger was named for Manufacturing – Small Company.
“I am honored to be recognized as one of NH Business Review’s Business Excellence Award recipients,” said Brensinger. “Starting a business fresh out of college was no easy task, with no clear roadmap. But because I surrounded myself with intelligent, dedicated and hardworking folks who are just as passionate about the products we design as they are about enjoying them outdoors, it’s made the journey possible. We’ve overcome challenges and celebrated successes together, both in the office and in the mountains. NEMO has certainly been the greatest adventure of my life.”
