OFM announces ‘New Year, New Office’ winner

Holly Springs, NC – OFM, one of the nation’s leading office and school furniture manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers, announced today the winner off its “New Year, New Office” contest, which was held earlier this year to kick off 2011. The Economic Development Investment Fund (EDIF), a nonprofit organization based in Sarasota, Fla. was named the winner of the competition and won a stylish modular OFM conference room setup to help furnish its new office space.

“OFM is excited to help a growing organization as part of the contest,” said Blake Zalcberg, chief operating officer for OFM who organized the competition. “We received a lot of good submissions from small businesses around the country, but felt the Economic Development Investment Fund made the best case to our judges about why they deserve the new office furniture.”

Contestants who own or work at a small business registered in the United States with fifty employees were encouraged to enter the OFM “New Year, New Office” contest, which kicked off in January, by submitting a photo of their current office and a brief description of why they deserve a makeover.
