For the past six years Corp! magazine has honored Michigan companies and entrepreneurs who are a driving force in the economy and state’s innovation. This year the publication honored both Michigan Economic Bright Spots and Entrepreneurs of Distinction at a Premier Awards Breakfast and Symposium held today at the VisTaTech Center in Livonia.
Winners of this year’s awards were featured in the May/June 2013 Corp! print edition and in the June 27, 2013 Everything Business digital e-publication. Winners were selected based on an online questionnaire, which determined their growth over the past year as well as their economic impact on the state of Michigan.
The winners ranged from small businesses to multinational corporations, from companies employing less than 10 people to others with several thousand employees. (See following lists of winners.)
“This year’s winning companies are the future of Michigan and an important key to moving the state’s improving economy forward. We found that this year’s winners love and desire to do business in the state,” said Jennifer Kluge, publisher.
The Economic Bright Spots and Entrepreneurs of Distinction Awards event is sponsored by Clark Hill, inFUSION Group, Rehmann, Vistage Michigan, Austin Financial Group LLC, Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center, Genisys Credit Union, Grant, Millman and Johnson, P.C. and Lambert Edwards & Associates.
