In its 36th year, the Excellence Awards has continuously grown to shine a light on Greater Philadelphia’s small to mid-size business community. Each year, we’re privileged to acknowledge the most noteworthy businesses who demonstrate unique vision, innovation, and achievement in support of our local economy. With a record number of nominations, the Chamber’s Small Business Board had quite the task of narrowing down the honorees to just seven companies and two individuals.

We’re proud to announce the honorees of the 36th Annual Excellence Awards:

Visionary Award Honoree

In addition to recognizing the region’s most prestigious small to mid-size businesses, this year the Chamber is honoring PIDC as the Visionary Award Honoree for 60 years of driving growth to every corner of Philadelphia.

Since 1958, the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC) has offered flexible financing tools, a targeted portfolio of industrial and commercial real estate, and Philadelphia-based knowledge to help clients invest, develop, and grow. PIDC has settled over 7,150 transactions with a diverse range of clients – including more than $16 billion of financing and more than 3,200 acres of land sales – which have leveraged over $28.6 billion in total investment and assisted in retaining and creating hundreds of thousands of jobs in Philadelphia.

2018 marks 60 years since PIDC’s founding – an anniversary worth celebrating. In those six decades, PIDC has worked with hundreds of clients, including past Excellence Award winners:
