Local businesses win 20/20 Campaign awards
The most recent class of high-growth companies honored with the Northern New Mexico 20/20 Campaign awards includes eight local businesses based in Los Alamos, Santa Fe and Taos.
The Regional Development Corporation launched the campaign in 2012 and seeks to support at least 20 companies on track to double their workforce and/or revenues before the year 2020.
