Crosscutting Concepts Receives Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry

In an annual event celebrating West Virginia companies that expanded into new foreign markets, President and CEO Derek Gregg was presented with the Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin.

The award, based on the tradition of displaying the first dollar a business earns, commemorates companies entering new international markets by bestowing framed currency from those markets. 52 companies were presented with the annual award in 2013, a new record for the state.

Governor Tomblin stated, "In 2012, our state’s exports reached a record high of $11.3 billion. Expanding into new markets around the world has provided our businesses an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to successfully compete in the global marketplace. And I’m pleased to have this opportunity to honor them for their success."
