Our Beginning

Nancy Tessier created Windsor Business Networks out of a desire to boost the local economy by promoting community businesses through the website, social media, in person and by word-of-mouth. Several years after starting the business, Ms. Tessier began promoting local job listings that are serving the community well, with many people gainfully employed as a result.
