American Governor co-founders Dan Berrien and Scott Ginesin accepted the accolade on behalf of AGC at a November award ceremony held in Philadelphia. Co-founder Jerry Runyan was unable to attend the event but thanks and congratulates all American Governor employees for their valuable contributions that made this win possible. SmartCEO’s Circle of Excellence Awards program recognizes the region’s most accomplished employers for business excellence in 10 distinct categories. American Governor was awarded its Manufacturing win by an independent committee of local businesses from 30 other competing finalists.

American Governor was profiled in the November/December 2014 issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated the win at the awards reception alongside fellow finalists and winners.

“I need to be a cheerleader, motivator, and visionary, and set the course so everyone knows where we are going and how we’re going to get there,” Ginesin said.

Thanks to that motivation and vision, AGC has expanded its global reach by having done business in over 60 countries worldwide and this year opening offices in Brazil and Mexico. As it expands its business around the world, AGC is committed to its core values of being customer focused, offering the highest quality equipment and expertise, developing strong relationships, and continually improving its people, products, processes, and relationships.
