Inland business owner wins state award

By on August 10, 2018

Michael Rademaker, founder and chief executive officer of MGR in Upland, has received a 2018 Small Business of the Year Award from the California State Legislature.

Rademaker was one of 75 small-business owners who received an award, according to a statement.

There are approximately 3.3 million small businesses – meaning no more than 100 employees – in California.

Rademaker received the award from Assemblyman Marc Steinorth, R- Alta Loma, during a ceremony in Sacramento.

“I am deeply honored to receive this award and very proud of my MGR team,” Rademaker said in the statement. “It is a great privilege to work with such a hardworking and dedicated group of people.”

MGR is a real estate and property management firm. Last year it bought more than $135 worth of commercial real estate in the Inland Empire, including One Lakeshore Centre, an  office complex at 3281 E. Guasti Road in Ontario, for $36.8 million.
