Boston, MA – Today, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) announced that Heidrea Communications LLC. - owned by Jesse G. Brown and Matt Mastroianni- has been selected to receive the prestigious Massachusetts SBA Veteran-Owned Small Business of the Year Award for 2013.


The selection for this award was based on the following criteria: staying power, growth in number of employees, increase in sales and/or unit volume, current and past financial reports, innovation of product or service, and response to adversity and community contributions.  Heidrea Communications was nominated for this award by Anne Trevisani, a Vice President and Commercial Loan Officer for South Eastern Economic Development Corporation.


Heidrea Communications LLC was established by Mr. Brown and Mr. Mastroianni in 2007, and is a general contracting firm specializing in the wireless industry. The primary focus of Heidrea is tower construction and maintenance throughout New England. The firm offers a full range of electrical services ranging from electrical service, civil engineering, carpentry, HVAC, and steel fabrication. More than 30% of its employees are United States Veterans.


“It is a privilege and an honor to present this award to Jesse Brown and Matt Mastroianni, who made tremendous sacrifices for our country as veterans of the United States Marine Corps, and who demonstrated their continued commitment to providing our veteran community and their families the support they need to keep moving forward in a positive direction.” said Bob Nelson, Massachusetts District Director.  “The success of Heidrea is a direct reflection of Mr. Brown’s and Mr. Mastroianni’s determination, vision, and pride of ownership.  They are truly an American small business success story.”


Heidrea Communications will be honored with other 2013 award winners at an annual SBA awards celebration event in June.
