To address outdated, old or messy offices, the Daily Herald and Daily Herald Business Ledger are holding an Office Makeover Contest.

Rieke Office, LED Rite and VidTech Audio Visual Technologies are assisting in the contest and providing everything from Wi-Fi to lighting.


Our Office Makeover sponsors have reviewed the applicants and selected five finalists. These five entries will be featured in the Daily Herald business section, as well as the Business Ledger, starting today.

"We've had a lot of success with home makeovers so remaking an office seemed like the perfect next step," said M. Eileen Brown, AVP/director of strategic marketing and innovation at the Daily Herald Media Group.
