46Solutions Named Commerce Lexington’s 2023 Small Business of the Year at Salute to Small Business Awards Luncheon
Established in 2019 by its parent company, the Davis H. Elliot Company and its vice president of I.T., Bob Fronk, 46Solutions provides technology services to homes and businesses in central Kentucky. Its residential solutions help homeowners by designing and installing high-quality audio and video systems, creating immersive entertainment experiences, and providing expert technical support and maintenance. Commercial services include managed I.T. services, cybersecurity, phone systems, cloud communication, and network consulting. In the four years since it was established, the business was forced to alter its business plan due to the COVID-19 pandemic, became profitable with 300% employee growth, captured significant market share from its competitors, and opened a state-of-the-art audio-video showroom in Lexington Green.
Commerce Lexington Board Chair Cassidy Rosenthal (Stites & Harbison, PLLC), said, “Commerce Lexington’s annual Salute to Small Business Awards program is the perfect opportunity for the business community to come together, say thank you, and recognize our area small businesses that are so vital to our economy. This year’s Category Award winners have overcome adversity, fundraising challenges, workforce issues, and the constantly changing economic landscape.
