About the Business:
Anne Caruso is Manager at First Choice Business Brokers, the world’s leading specialist in business sales. Anne’s expertise and passion for assisting entrepreneurial-minded people to buy or sell their businesses enables people to ultimately live the lifestyle they’ve always dreamed of. She is a strong advocate for providing leaders with the resources needed to take the next step in their business journey.
Before joining First Choice Business Brokers, Anne spent over 15 years as a successful business owner in the technology industry before selling the business in 2020. As President of Networks Plus, Anne and her husband, Jerry, grew the small New Jersey IT business to one of the region’s most sought-after providers of digital services including VoIP, website design and consulting.
Anne’s commitment to the South Jersey business community is clearly reflected through her active role in various local organizations. She proudly serves on the Board of Trustees for the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce (BCRCC) where she is a member of the Executive Board and Membership Task Force. In addition, she is a member of the Moorestown Rotary Board of Directors, Immediate Past President of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) South Jersey Chapter and former Honorary Commander with the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
Throughout her career, Anne has made it a top priority to help women foster connections through professional mentorship and networking. During her time as President of NAWBO, the chapter focused on growing membership and soared to new heights. She currently serves on the BCRCC Women and Business Committee and participates in the Alice Paul Mentoring Program which offers leadership development for teens. Anne is also proud of her history as President and Founder of the Ladies of the Irish Heritage, a non-sectarian group that meets monthly to celebrate Irish culture.
Anne’s fierce drive, keen business sense and wholehearted dedication to serving South Jersey have not gone unnoticed. In 2019, she was recognized by SJ Biz as Executive of the Year and in 2018, received the NJ Senate and Assembly Woman of Excellence Award and Delaware Valley Women of the Year Award. She also received the 2017 NAWBO Company of the Year Award, Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce 2016 Chairman’s Award of Excellence and SJ Biz Magazine’s 2017 Women to Watch.
While Anne has masterfully balanced a successful career with a demanding philanthropic schedule, she cites her family as her greatest accomplishment. She currently resides in Palmyra, New Jersey with her husband and loves to spend time with her children and beautiful granddaughter, Violet.
