Regan will be recognized at an Awards Dinner at the Olde York Country Club on 30 April.

The Voice of Business Award is given annually to an individual or company that demonstrates excellence in commitment to the Burlington County business community through enhancement of the County’s image, involvement in civic projects, use of new technologies, and providing leadership in the business community.

The award is also for his work with Main Street Mount Holly in revitalizing their downtown, the Rotary Club in establishing First Night, a community New Year’s Eve celebration, and his participation in Leadership New Jersey.
