A Cambodian-American has been nominated for a prestigious award honouring business leaders with immigrant backgrounds in the state of Massachusetts.
Phalla Nol, whose family is originally from Battambang province, was among 38 immigrants nominated for the 2019 Barry M Portnoy Immigrant Entrepreneur Awards, the Immigrant Learning Centre announced this week.
The ILC is a non-profit organisation dedicated to immigrant issues. It is the main organiser for the awards, named after Barry M Portnoy, the late founder and chairman of the RMR group, a major real estate investment trust in the United States. The awards, which are held annually, is now on its eighth edition.
