We often are sharing the good news with our clients of awards won on their behalf, so it was especially nice to get the news that we were being honored.
Penna Powers was awarded the 2015 Salt Lake Chamber Corporate Partner of the Year this week. The recognition was earned for its extra-mile efforts supporting the public policy initiatives of the Chamber, especially as they pertain to the Salt Lake Chamber’s public policy efforts with the Utah Transportation Coalition.
“It’s a privilege to work with the Salt Lake Chamber and the Utah Transportation Coalition on the important issue of transportation,” said David L. Smith, Penna Powers president and managing partner. “The Chamber’s leadership in advocating transportation investment is critical to the future of Utah’s economy, environment and the quality of life we all enjoy. Working with them has been a great opportunity to experience firsthand the great things our business community can accomplish when we work together.”
The Corporate Partner of the Year Award honors one organization in the community that has influenced the Chamber’s mission in the past year showing exemplary support by committing time and abilities to bolster the business community. The Award was presented during the Salt Lake Chamber’s 128th Annual Meeting. Initiated in 2013, the Corporate Partner of The Year award was previously awarded to Wells Fargo (2013) and Hilton Salt Lake City Center (2014).
