ME Global Inc. was honored with this prestigious award at a luncheon sponsored by the Minneapolis St. Paul Business journal, where over 200 attendees from the international business community were present.
ME Global’s President, Andy Fulton, accepted this prestigious award at a ceremony in Minneapolis on March 22, 2012. This honor is a tribute to a select group of Minnesota companies that have achieved exceptional progress and success in international trade as well as the positive impact that exports have on the state’s economy.
This year's focus at the awards ceremony was Manufacturing/Services and Agricultural Commodities/Processed Foods. Along with the awards ceremony, the new Minnesota Export Initiative was launched by the Brookings-Rockefeller Project on State and Metropolitan Innovation and the Minnesota Trade Office, where a coalition of top government and business leaders are participating to connect companies to global opportunities through a Unified Export Team, target the intersection of local products and global demand, promote global advantages, and “Sell Minnesota” as the core strategies to drive achievement of their export objectives – double exports by the year 2017.
