Expesite Recognized for Its Dedication to the Columbus Community

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - November 11, 2009) - Expesite has been awarded one of seven 2010 Pillar Awards for Community Service in central Ohio. Presented by Mutual of Ohio and Smart Business Columbus magazine, the award is designed to emphasize the importance of corporate social responsibility and to strengthen bonds between for-profit and nonprofit organizations.

Expesite is committed to making a change in the community by volunteering and donating to organizations with a mission to help others in need. Philanthropy is a significant part of Expesite's culture and continues to be supported by its corporate values. Jeff Sopp, CEO of Expesite, said, "Being recognized as a 2010 Pillar Award recipient is an honor and a testament to our corporate social responsibility. However, the associates at Expesite are the true heroes for their volunteerism and dedication to helping organizations throughout the year."

At Expesite, associates dedicate time and energy to support organizations that fight disease, mentor children, support those less fortunate and take care of animals. Involving associates in the community not only enhances Expesite's corporate image, but it strengthens employee morale, improves retention, attracts talent and opens doors for partnerships. Maintaining a stable, profitable company allows Sopp, and his associates, time to participate in numerous community functions benefitting the Columbus area. In fact, Sopp believes John McConnell, Sr., Founder and Former Chairman of Worthington Industries, said it best, "The best thing a company can do for its community is to make a profit."

The 2010 Pillar Award winners will be featured in the January edition of Smart Business Columbus magazine and will be recognized at a special event being held on January 21st, at the Creekside Conference & Event Center in Gahanna.
