Last week the Philadelphia Business Journal held its Annual Minority Business Leader Award ceremony celebrating successful minorities in the Philadelphia region.
The Philadelphia Business Journal selected 25 deserving individuals who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and philanthropy for the communities they serve. PIDC was excited to learn three leaders from client organizations were among the winners.
PIDC is proud to have provided resources for the following organizations to support their growth. We are pleased each of their leaders is being recognized for their dedication and positive presence in Philadelphia.
