President’s “E” Award

Recognition for a job well done might not be the ultimate goal of a company; however, it is certainly appreciated when it is received. Such validation represents an objective confirmation of a company’s striving for excellence.

One such recognition is the President’s “E” Award, the highest honor a U.S. entity can receive for significant contributions to the expansion of U. S. exports. “E” Award winners must demonstrate sustained export expansion over multiple years. Such expansion must be measurable, innovative, sustainable, and have a broad impact.
