FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — Joe Wilson, CEO of PermaTreat, was awarded the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber's Joseph L. Argenzio Award, on March 25, at the State of the Chamber event.

The award recognizes volunteer work on behalf of the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce, and is named for the late Joe Argenzio, the youngest infantryman to land on Omaha Beach during the D-Day invasion in June 1944. Argenzio developed a special relationship with the Chamber late in his life.

Wilson has been an active Chamber member for decades and continues to serve on its Board of Directors.
