– Based in Woodbury, Connecticut for the past 19 years, The Best Solution, Inc. (www.thebestsolution.com), Microsoft Certified Partners, has moved to 450 Heritage Road in Southbury. Providers of financial support and solutions for companies throughout the United States, co-owners Kara Hermes and Richard Novia, Microsoft Certified Partners, collectively bring more than 50 years of combined extensive experience in sales, operations management, software and hardware solutions. “We help companies improve their operations,” stated Novia, “and get the most from every dollar they earn by offering controllership-level services.” Those services include financial and accounting system audits, training, technical and professional assistance with financial software products for mid to large-sized companies in the $5 to $100M in annual gross earnings.
Founded in 1991 by Kara Hermes and her late-husband, Neil Kenny, The Best Solution, Inc. was created to “meet the needs of companies that wanted to purchase their own accounting software, but did not know how to evaluate hardware and software options available to them.” Ms. Hermes pointed out that “we founded the company before Microsoft’s MS Office software was even a concept.” Their ambition was to help companies quantify their needs for accounting software and support for various accounting and financial software that were available during the time. “It was a time when most large companies used main frame computers and the majority of PC’s and Mac’s were relegated to stand-alone support tasks.”
In 1998, five years after the release of Dynamics software, The Best Solution, Inc. refocused its services to support Microsoft Business Solutions, and eventually, Microsoft Dynamics-GP. During that time, Hermes co-founded a regional partnership of resellers of all business solutions products that included 35 companies in 4 states. The resellers group met bi-monthly until the passing of Neil Kenny in 2006 after a long illness.
In 2008, Richard Novia joined The Best Solution, Inc. and enrolled the company into the Microsoft Dynamics Acceleration program; reorganized and updated the company’s website; and in 2008 was named Connecticut chapter president of IAMCP International Microsoft Channel Partners. Ms. Hermes is currently Treasurer of the IAMCP Connecticut chapter.
As executive vice president of sales, Novia brings to The Best Solution, Inc., more than 30 years in the software/hardware arena; manufacturing, printing and technology industries; and a strong background in the sales arena. Previously he was divisional director for R.R. Donnelly & Sons in Chicago for ten years, and founded and operated his own financial and accounting management consulting agency for seven years. Novia also assisted numerous companies facing bankruptcy recover and become profit leaders throughout New England.
The Best Solution, Inc. currently works with manufacturing firms, business services, medical organizations, environmental ‘green technologies’, transportation, construction, financial services and non-profit organizations. During 2010, they became members of the Waterbury Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Southbury Business Association (SBA).

– Washington, D.C September 11, 2010 The United States Airport and Seaport Police
(USASP) and International Association of Airport and Seaport Police (IAASP) today announced Admiral Thad Allen as the fourth recipient of the Fred V. Morrone 9/11 Memorial Award. The award ceremony will take place in conjunction with the Tri-Association Award Dinner in New York City on November 3, 2010 at the Chelsea Pier 61.
Admiral Thad W. Allen assumed the duties as the 23rd Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard
on May 25, 2006. He is a native of Tucson, Arizona and graduated from the U.S. Coast Guard
Academy in 1971. On May 25, 2010 Allen retired from the U.S. Coast Guard. He has been
widely-praised for his performance directing the federal response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the Gulf Coast region from September 2005 to January 2006. Following his position as
commandant, Allen continued to serve on active duty for 36 days in his role as National Incident Commander of the Unified Command for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Allen officially retired from the U.S. Coast Guard on June 30, 2010, but continues to serve as
the National Incident Commander of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill as a senior executive of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Admiral Allen previously served as the Coast Guard Chief of Staff and Commanding Officer,
Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, D.C., from May 2002 to April 2006. He also served
as the Chairman of the Department of Homeland Security’s Joint Requirements Council from
2003 to 2006. In September 2005, Admiral Allen was designated the Principal Federal Official
for Hurricane Katrina response and recovery operations in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. He additionally served as Principal Federal Official for Hurricane Rita response and recovery activities in Louisiana.
Admiral Thad W. Allen Named 4th Recipient of Fred V. Morrone Memorial 9/11 Award
Prior to his assignment as Chief of Staff, Admiral Allen served as Commander, Coast Guard
Atlantic Area, Fifth Coast Guard District, and U.S. Maritime Defense Zone Atlantic in
Portsmouth, VA, where he was the operational commander for all Coast Guard activities in an
area of responsibility spanning five Coast Guard Districts, encompassing more than 14 million
square miles and involving 26,000 military and civilian employees, and 27,900 members of the
USCG Auxiliary. Admiral Allen led the Coast Guard’s Atlantic Area forces in response to the
terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
“Today, America and the world’s communities are a safer place because of the work
accomplished by Admiral Allen,” said Jay Grant, director of the United States Airport and
Seaport Police (USASP). “I have personally worked with him over the past years and have
found his leadership inspiring, his skills to accomplish a job extraordinary and his commitment to succeed in his tasks masterful. It is hard to find an individual of this stature. He has served his Nation with great distinction. We honor him in the name of Fred Morrone and the 36 brave
officers from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department who perished in the World Trade Towers and to all first responders who gave their lives on nine-eleven and
those who serve each and every day.”
“We are pleased to celebrate the accomplishments of Admiral Allen,” said Ronald J. Boyd, chief of the Los Angeles Port Police and president of the International Association of Airport and Seaport Police (IAASP). He had a direct impact on the 9/11 aftermath and has shown great leadership in the fight against global terrorism and is well deserving of this honor. The world is a different place because of the events of 9/11. We have an obligation to never forget our fellow officers, who gave their lives to save others, and are pleased to bestow the Fred Morrone 9/11 Award to great individuals such as the Admiral for their unselfish work.”
About the Fred V. Morrone Memorial 9/11 Award The Fred V. Morrone 9/11 Award was jointly established by the United States Airport and Seaport Police and the International Association of Airport and Seaport Police in 2007. The inaugural recipient was the Honorable Rudy Giuliani, former Mayor of the City of New York. In 2008, the Honorable Asa Hutchinson, former Undersecretary for the Department of Homeland Security was the second recipient; and in 2009, Francis Townsend, Assistant to President (George W. Bush) for homeland security and counterterrorism was the third recipient.
On September 11, 2001, New York & New Jersey Port Authority Police were the first law
enforcement personnel to respond to the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center. Officers
quickly rushed into the burning buildings and helped rescue thousands of employees who
arrived at work moments earlier. Thirty-seven of these heroic men and women were killed that
day when the towers collapsed. One of those heroes was Superintendent of Police Fred
Morrone, the most senior officer to perish.
Superintendent Morrone was also serving as the incoming president of the International
Association of Airport and Seaport Police at the time of this death.
One of Fred’s concerns was always the lack of professional port police training for police officers from third world countries and ensuring all police first responders working in the public
transportation filed were properly trained. As part of his vision he wanted to establish
subsidized training programs to further assistance within the profession. Following Fred’s untimely death, the international board resolved to continue the initiative and to establish a strategic plan to make the Education Fund concept become a reality, in Fred’s memory. The Fred Morrone Education Program relies mainly on donations and fund raising activities.
