We are exceedingly grateful Mayor Foxx took the time to honor us with a proclamation from the city of Charlotte, and we are looking forward to a promising future here.
Charlotte, NC (Vocus) September 13, 2010
Mayor Anthony Foxx presented Prodigy Diabetes Care, LLC with a Proclamation from the city of Charlotte for their Excellence in Business Development. The President of Prodigy®, Ramzi Abulhaj, and the Chief Operating Officer, Rick Admani Abulhaj, accepted the award on behalf of their entire staff.
Prodigy® received the award for their rapid growth overseas and here at home. The company currently obtains a sole-source contract with North Carolina Medicaid, which makes them the only supplier of diabetes supplies to Medicaid recipients. By successfully fulfilling their contract and developing strong relationships internationally, Prodigy’s recognition was well deserved.
“We are delighted to receive such a prestigious award from Mayor Foxx. We owe much of our success to the city of Charlotte and the state of North Carolina,” Rick Abulhaj said.
“Our relocation to Charlotte has proven to be an advantageous decision. Since we headquartered here, our business has substantially expanded domestically and internationally, which led to our company winning the Export Achievement Certificate in May.”
The Export Achievement Certificate is a nationally renowned award, given to companies who have excelled in exporting. The award was presented by Deputy Commerce Secretary, Ro Khanna, who was personally appointed by President Obama.
“Greg Sizemore, the Director of the Charlotte U.S. Export Assistance Center U.S. Department of Commerce, and his employees played a major role in our exporting
success. Through their support we were able to receive both international and local recognition,” Ramzi Abulhaj explains.
After receiving the award both men expressed their appreciation. “We are exceedingly grateful Mayor Foxx took the time to honor us with a proclamation from the city of Charlotte, and we are looking forward to a promising future here.”
Prodigy® will be introducing multiple groundbreaking products to the market next year, which will each take place here in Charlotte.
