TRM Microwave owner/CEO Wendy Tirollo was awarded the 2020 Business Excellence Award in the Manufacturing category for small organizations from NH Business Review (NHBR). The annual awards recognize New Hampshire’s top business executives for their imagination, industriousness, innovation and achievements. 

The 18th-annual Business Excellence Awards ceremony, honoring all recipients, was held virtually on Tuesday, October 6.

This year marks 10 years since Wendy took the helm of TRM Microwave, a defense and aerospace manufacturer. Under the mentorship of her husband and TRM’s former CEO and founder Tony Tirollo, Wendy found her own leadership style as she prepared to lead the company forward in the wake of Tony’s long-term health concerns and passing in 2016.

“The kudos from NHBR belong to the entire team at TRM,” Wendy said. “The backbone of the company has consistently been the ingenious, inventive subject matter experts on our team, whose custom innovations have helped make this country safer through their contributions to defense systems.”

TRM opens its expanded facility this month in Bedford, providing additional manufacturing and production capacity that poises the company for significant growth.

“We are proud to honor this year’s powerhouse crop of Business Excellence Awards recipients, all of whom have made a great impact, not only within their industries, but within their local communities, and beyond,” said Jeff Feingold, editor of NH Business Review. “Congratulations to TRM Microwave, and all of this year’s recipients, who continue to make a positive impact on the Granite State, especially in this time of uncertainty.”
