DEC Member wins prestigious President’s E Award!

DEC member Paul Zito and the Regional Growth Partnership of Northwest Ohio wins the prestigious President’s E Award!

Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce honored 64 companies and organizations from across the country with the President’s “E” and “E Star” Awards recognizing their contributions to increasing U.S. exports.

Created in 1961 by Executive Order of the President, the President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition a U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. U.S. companies that have successfully grown their exports in overseas markets, along with companies or organizations that have facilitated the exports of others, are nominated by the International Trade Administration’s (ITA) U.S. Commercial Service, within the U.S. Department of Commerce.

“Trade impacts the lives of every American worker, business and community,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. “I am proud to recognize this year’s President’s “E” and “E Star” award recipients for their efforts and contributions to increase economic prosperity across our country and further position the U.S. private sector as the partner of choice in markets around the globe.”

As a 100% privately led group, the RGP focuses on meeting the site location needs of corporate clients in a confidential, innovative and time-sensitive manner. Serving as a true regional and private entity, the RGP is not bound by jurisdictional boundaries, which allows us to act in the best interest of businesses each and every time.
