PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

The Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce and BKD, LLP have announced the finalists for their 2016 Small Business of the Year Award.

“Our Small Business of the Year Award provides an opportunity to highlight three outstanding small businesses in the Pittsburg area each year,” said Devin Gorman, Pittsburg Area Chamber vice president of operations. “These highly visible, successful businesses are outstanding supporters of our community and each one is deserving of this distinction.”

The finalists were selected by a nomination review committee, and interviews have been conducted with each of the finalists. The winner of the 2016 Small Business of the Year Award will be announced at the chamber’s Annual Banquet on May 26.

Pro X Realty 

The Pro X brand took form in 2009 as Tyler Casey began managing rental properties. A few short years after starting his career in real estate, Tyler Casey branched out on his own and founded Pro X Realty in 2014. As the business has grown, Tyler has brought on additional partners and now operates Pro X Realty, Pro X Property Solutions and Pro X Construction.

Pro X is the largest property management company in the Pittsburg area and employs an additional seven real-estate agents. Along with the team at Pro X, Tyler and his significant other, Renee Miessner, are active in a variety of organizations and have been members of the Pittsburg Area Chamber since 2012.
