Dave Moffatt, president and CEO, Prentke Romich Co.

Under the leadership of President and CEO Dave Moffatt, Prentke Romich Co. has grown its products and services to help thousands of people with physical and other speech disabilities in the past decade.

PRC was launched as a mission-based company to provide communication devices for people with various disabilities through a collaboration of hardware devices, software and speech-language science. The company’s devices, which have multiple language capabilities and provide training and education, serve a global base of consumers who rely on the technologies for a better quality of life.

Since PRC was founded in 1967, the company has been pioneering the field of assistive technology and augmentative communication to further its mission to “help people with disabilities achieve their potential in educational, vocational, and personal pursuits.” PRC’s philosophy for its business is in line with this belief. One of the drivers of PRC’s corporate culture is the idea that everyone deserves a voice. It’s being committed to people, whether it’s the people using the company’s products, its employees or members of the local community.

Headquartered in Wooster, PRC has consistently contributed to local job growth throughout the economic recession, despite the fact that other companies may have been reducing staff. From 2009 to 2010 the company added 22 employees, increasing its staff to 218 people. Also, as a 100 percent employee-owned company, PRC is made up of employee-owners who are dedicated to providing world-class service and delivering the best performance for clients.

Each year, PRC contributes to support numerous local charities and organizations. The company also sponsors various events and associations in and outside of its field. This year, PRC’s Relay for Life Team, which the company sponsors annually, placed first in Most Money Raised by the Team for the large company category.
