Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Paul Hodnefield, associate general counsel at Corporation Service Company® (CSC®), has been awarded the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) Medallion for his years of service to the citizens and business community of Minnesota.
Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie presented Hodnefield with the award on August 13, 2013. “Paul has been a partner for years in improving the way in which my office supports secured financing, a crucial economic engine,” Ritchie said. “His expertise and dedication has benefitted businesses large and small across the state, and he is more than deserving of this national award.”
Founded in 1904, the National Association of Secretaries of State is considered the oldest nonpartisan organization of public officials in the United States. The group’s NASS Medallion honors those “who exemplify values and service that serve the public interest in the areas relating to the duties of the Office of the Secretary of State, including elections, business services, voting access and civic education.”
Hodnefield was tapped for the award thanks to his nearly 20 years of work with the Minnesota Business Services Division of the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State, where he has provided welcome insight and offered ideas for improved business methods. Hodnefield is a major contributor to Minnesota’s new Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) online application and a sought-after authority on the UCC’s Revised Article 9 and its implementation. His articles and white papers are a trusted resource for many within the secured lending industry.
“I am thrilled and honored to receive this award, which was made possible through CSC’s ongoing support and encouragement of my involvement with filing offices and industry organizations,” said Hodnefield, who lives in Bloomington, Minnesota.
