March 22, 2010

Simply surviving 2009 was the goal for many Maine businesses.

But we found three extraordinary business leaders, who not only steered their organizations through the maelstrom of 2009, but managed to have them emerge stronger, more focused and poised for growth in 2010. They are our 10th annual Business Leaders of the Year.

After a successful career with a national food industry powerhouse, Michael Cote, our Small Company Business Leader of the Year and president and CEO of Look’s Gourmet Food, returned to his Maine roots and undertook the rebirth of a cannery in Whiting. Today, the seafood processor has products on 27% of the supermarket shelves in America and is expanding into global markets, with revenues expected to reach $10 million by 2015. Mike’s operation provides good jobs to one of the most economically challenged parts of the state and a market for local fishermen, helping sustain Maine’s seafaring tradition.
