Press release from: Basement Systems Inc.

Tom Peters, best known for his book, "In Search of Excellence" writes a blog that is attached to the website. On it he has announced what he sees as MVP's of 2007 in terms of management and business practices. This year's inductees included Carly Fiorina from IBM, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California, and third on the list, Larry Janesky of Basement Systems Inc, in Seymour, CT. Tom is quoted as saying, "[I] Love it when there is a superstar performer in a mundane business. Founder-CEO Larry Janesky has built a $50 million ++, fast-growing enterprise in the biz of providing dry basements that are free of nasty mold and available as another (big) room in one's home."

One reason for Larry being on the list was his adoption of the Baldridge Criteria a few years back. The following is taken from Tom's blog:

"The desire to pass on a successful business was Larry Janesky's incentive to investigate the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence. "Once we got involved with the Criteria, we became more passionate about having the best culture to become more competitive," says Larry. Organizations most committed to earning money for their shareholders have leaders who state that their culture is its most important asset. Great cultures breed attraction to and retention of talent - it is the key factor to their future success as an industry winner."

Basement Systems continues to expand and offer more services to its clientele after a record year. In a short while they will be completing construction on a new building at their Seymour, CT location that will house storage and warehousing. They currently offer services in Basement waterproofing, Crawlspace repair, and Basement finishing.
