TFMoran Principals attend Saint Anselm College Inaugural Ceremony of the 11th President

TFMoran was represented by principals Dylan Cruess and Jeff Kevan who attended the Inaugural Ceremony of the Eleventh President of Saint Anselm College on October 17, 2019.  Members and guests of the Saint Anselm community joined in the Sullivan Arena that marked the official beginning of the tenure for Joseph A. Favazza, Ph.D., after the departure of former president, Stephen DiSalvo. “I am so happy that Saint Anselm took a chance on me,” stated Dr. Favazza. Throughout his speech he spoke on implementing a new graduate program in criminal justice and hopes that other areas of study; business, healthcare, and politics; will eventually offer graduate programs as well. Dr. Favazza comes to Saint Anselm College from Stonehill College where he had academic leadership roles,since 2005, serving as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs since 2012.

TFMoran has had the remarkable opportunity to work with Saint Anselm College for more than twenty years and is looking forward to working with the new President.  Some of TFMoran’s civil engineering and land surveying projects throughout the campus include land surveying the entire campus; athletic fields; tennis courts; football stadium; ice hockey arena; student housing; a student center complex; a new college green; parking and road improvements; and the new Welcome Center, which is currently under construction.

The campus has come a long way since it was first founded in 1889 when the founding president, Abbot Hilary Pfraengle, OSB purchased the land on a hilltop overlooking the City of Manchester. He oversaw the construction of the college’s first building, which was destroyed by a fire a year later when nearing completion. Fortunately for Saint Anselm College, Abbot Pfraengle was determined and decided to rebuild.  As Saint Anselm College continues to grow they take pride in their community, campus, and curriculum, while continuing their mission to provide a strong education in the liberal arts, grounded in the Benedictine intellectual tradition.

TFMoran extends a warm Congratulations and Best Wishes for a long and successful tenure to President Favazza!

Congratulations to TFMoran’s COO, Dylan Cruess for graduating from the 2019 Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program that took place at NHTI Concord’s Community College, on Thursday, October 10th.  Dylan was one of 37 scholars from nine New Hampshire counties representing a diverse range of industries who was selected for New Hampshire’s inaugural class. Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program partners with the Community College System of New Hampshire and Manchester Community College who hosts the three-month long intensive class.

To date, the program has more than 8,800 business owners that have graduated across all 50 states. Goldman Sachs is strategic in their planning for the program to ensure that the small business owners participating in the program, leave with a new perspective on how to consistently grow their revenues. While attending this course, Dylan received one-on-one expert advice and can apply that to TFMoran’s business plan.

In the 10,000 Small Businesses Program, it has shown that since 2016 the percentage of U.S. Small Businesses grew by 47%. The results have also shown that after 30 months, the percentage of the 10,000 Small Businesses alumni have added jobs in their businesses by 56.5%. Goldman Sachs ensures that all participants are involved and receive the one-on-one time, as well as participating in groups to listen to the advice of others. What alumni can take away is not only working on your business, but working on your business to make it better and how to manage for growth.
