Fire-Dex Receives 2013 Leading EDGE Award for Value Creation in Northeast Ohio
Fire-Dex was among an elite group of 101 Northeast Ohio mid-sized companies to be recognized at The 2013 Leading EDGE Awards on May 23 at Lorain County Community College in Elyria, Ohio. In its seventh year, this prestigious award was developed by The Entrepreneurs EDGE to recognize value-creating, mid-sized companies in the region. Fire-Dex has received an EDGE award nearly every year since the beginning. Qualifying companies operate within the 17 counties of Northeast Ohio and generate revenues up to $750 million, a portion of which must be outside the region.
In attendance to receive the award was President & CEO Brett Jaffe. “It is an honor to be associated with all of the Leading-EDGE companies and recognized for the impact that our business has in North East Ohio.”
Honored companies were identified by the value they create in our regional economy, based on a sum of their EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) and total taxable compensation for all Northeast Ohio-based employees.
EDGE drives growth for companies by bringing together their leadership teams to share best practices and inspire each other to pursue the biggest opportunities. EDGE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and is the only Northeast Ohio economic development group that is focused on helping mid-sized companies strengthen their leadership teams in order to take their companies to the next level.
