The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC) today named PAETEC, headquartered in Fairport, NY, as a finalist for a Corporate Citizenship Award in the category of Corporate Stewardship, Small/Midsize Business.
“The businesses being nominated for the Corporate Stewardship Award are models of business citizenship at its finest,” said U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue. “PAETEC has earned this recognition for its dedication and attention to the needs of its customers, investors, employees, and community.”
PAETEC was nominated for a combination of factors that reflect its recent social contributions and economic performance.
The annual Corporate Stewardship Award is a prestigious award that recognizes a company for strong economic performance and a sustained contribution to community and social progress. Four additional companies are honored as finalists in this category this year: Banco Popular North America, ChoicePoint Inc., Greyston Bakery and Symetra Financial.
A committee of prominent Americans, chaired by Harvard University professor Michael Porter, will select the 2007 Corporate Stewardship Award winner. Donohue will announce the winner during a celebration dinner on November 7 at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. Six hundred business, civic, and government leaders are expected to attend.
BCLC’s mission is to advance the positive role of business in society. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing more than three million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region.
