2017 Business Excellence Winner:
Dylan Cruess of TFMoran
Dylan Cruess, chief operating officer of TFMoran in Bedford, is the 2017 Business Excellence winner in the real estate and construction category for a small organization
Nominated by: Kimberley Griswold of Brainium

Dylan may have learned the ropes from his engineer father, but it is he and the new leadership team at TFMoran that have steered the company through a period of unprecedented growth. Since ownership of the company was transferred in 2013 to four senior employees, including Dylan, TFMoran has more than doubled its annual revenue, with continued double-digit growth. Because of Dylan’s background and upbringing, he grasps engineering, project management and surveying more than a typical operations person would. And that has enabled him to continue the original vision of TFMoran while strategically growing the company to new levels.

Having grown up among the TFMoran team, Dylan is well aware that it is the teamwork of the employees that is essential to the company’s success. That’s why Dylan has worked with the leadership team to increase the company match for employees’ 401K plans. And TFMoran’s positive culture is evidenced by its low turnover rate. Employees enjoy working at TFMoran because they are appreciated and encouraged to continue their education to become the best they can be. And the family-friendly atmosphere of the company allows not only for the flexibility to work from home when necessary but also the encouragement to give back to the community, as Dylan does.

Dylan’s leadership, work ethic, passion for community involvement and vision for TFMoran are why he is being honored with this award.

Happy Oregon Trails to TFM’s Sheryl Dodge!

The TFMoran team said their final goodbyes to TFM’s Accounting Clerk, Sheryl Dodge, this past week. Sheryl is originally from Oregon, and moved to New Hampshire due to her husband’s job location. Together they have four children, her oldest daughter lives in Oregon with her two children. Her oldest son also lives in Oregon and recently got married, and two younger sons. When her youngest graduated from high school, Sheryl and her family found it was best to move back home to Oregon.

Sheryl was a wonderful attribute to the TFM team and she played an important role in the office for the five years she worked here. For her last day, TFMoran staff hosted a luncheon in her honor, in the reception area with pizza and cupcakes. The party was a western theme consisting of cowboy boot patterned tablecloths, napkins and décor accompanied by the slogan “Happy Oregon Trails Sheryl!”  Thank you for everything you have done and good luck on your new endeavors, Sheryl!
