Throughout its 27-year history, EXCEL Management Systems has been a strong and enthusiastic supporter of small business and entrepreneurial efforts across Ohio, particularly in support of minority business enterprises and workplace diversity. EXCEL executives recently attended the Ohio Municipalities Business Conference & Expo, which was held last week at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. The first-of-its kind event was a marvelous opportunity to network with, and learn from a variety of community leaders in areas related to entrepreneurship, workplace diversity, and the needs and issues facing small businesses in Ohio.
The event was conducted under the leadership of Mayor Andrew J. Ginther and Chief Diversity Officer Stephen Francis, Esq. Both appear below with a host of luminaries from across the state at the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
EXCEL came away from the event with fresh perspectives on the exciting growth of the Ohio business community, and renewed enthusiasm to accelerate and reinforce our long-standing commitment to the success of small businesses throughout Ohio. We’re looking forward to attending again in 2018.
