Chris Cera won Small Business Person of the Year as part of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Excellence Awards.
The Arcweb CEO is the fourth Philly tech leader who’s won the award in as many years. (It’s interesting to see how, starting in 2010, Small Business Person of the Year has consistently been a tech entrepreneur. It’s a sign of the tech scene’s prominence in the last few years.)
Past winners include Artisan’s Bob MoulSEER Interactive’s Wil Reynolds and Bluecadet’s Josh Goldblum. The tech pattern is likely also due in part to the fact that the Chamber asks previous winners to nominate potential future award winners.
There were three other tech wins this year:

Companies: BuLogics / Arcweb Technologies / Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia / Hopeworks Camden / University City Science Center
