Small business award goes to Corporate Business Systems

Posted online
Jim Quesenberry and his 45 employees at Corporate Business Systems are celebrating their win as the 2010 W. Curtis Strube Small Business of the Year.

The award was announced Wednesday at the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce's Small Business Award Luncheon.

The office-automation equipment supplier is in growth mode, having posted $8.6 million in revenues in 2009, and is on pace to hit its goal of $10 million for 2010, Quesenberry told Springfield Business Journal in a May 3 company profile.

The Springfield-based company has offices in Joplin and St. Robert, as well as a separate entity, CBS Leasing, run by Springfield employees. Negotiations are ongoing for additional locations in central Missouri and northwest Arkansas.

The Strube award is not the first professional recognition this year for the company - Savin honored CBS as its top-performing dealer in the central United States.

"It's been a big year," Quesenberry said at the luncheon. "I got a new hip and a hip new wife, and now the Small Business of the Year Award."

Corporate Business Systems was one of five finalists for the award, given each year to a company chosen based on a written application judged by an independent panel.

The other finalists for the 2010 award were Altec Computers and PC Medics, The Carpet Shoppe, The Conservatory of the Ozarks, and Dunton & Associates.

The award, given by the Springfield chamber since 1992, is named for W. Curtis Strube, the late director of Drury University's Breech School of Business.
