Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL - Harvey Nix, Chief Executive Officer of Birmingham-based Proventix Systems, Inc., has been named Alabama's Small Business Person of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

In May, Nix will be asked to take part in National Small Business Week in Washington, D.C.

During that time, one person will be selected as the 2014 National Small Business Person of the Year.

"Proventix, along with Alabama Power Co., instituted a major community project to help eliminate the human and economic costs of healthcare-associated infections and to create systems of high-quality monitoring and communications that create operational efficiencies for healthcare workers and systems," according to a news release from the Birmingham Business Alliance. "Proventix was an award recipient at the Birmingham Business Alliance's 2013 Small Business awards last fall."

"When the BBA Small Business Award judges recognized Proventix last fall, I was not at all surprised," said Victor Brown, Vice President of Minority Business and Small Business Development for the BBA. "Proventix is a tremendous asset for our region, and this award is a testament to Harvey Nix's hard work and continuing success in business growth and development."

SBA Assistant Administer Fred Baldassaro notified Proventix about the distinguished honor. "Your hard work, innovative ideas and dedication to your community have helped you succeed. The SBA is pleased to recognize your achievement and your role in driving our nation's economic growth."
