Introducing the leaders of the region’s smartest companies
Chase is honored to partner with Smart Business to present the 2014 Pittsburgh Smart 50 Awards. On behalf of our local team, we are thrilled to be part of this special celebration of leadership, innovation and impact in our community.
The inaugural class of Smart 50 honorees represents a diverse set of businesses and industries, but each winner shares an inspiring commitment to his or her organization and our community. We congratulate them on their well-deserved recognition for leading successful organizations.
The Smart 50 honorees have all contributed to the city of Pittsburgh — standing as a source of inspiration and leadership.
While the national economy slowly gains momentum, Pittsburgh has emerged as an enviable hotbed of innovation with industries such as advanced manufacturing, health care, education and technology fueling job growth and new investments.
Our population is growing for the first time in decades and we’re frequently ranked on lists like Business Insider’s 15 Hottest American Cities of the Future, Gallup’s Nine Cities Where Businesses Are Hiring the Most, and ranked second on MetroMonitor from the Brooking Institute’s 20 Best-Performing Cities in America.
For these and many other reasons, our Chase Commercial Banking team is proud to call Pittsburgh home and to be part of this community. Our local bankers are dedicated to helping smart leaders seize the opportunities that bring their goals within reach — offering proactive insight, tailored financial solutions and personalized service to midsized businesses in the region.
We take pride in strengthening our community by helping local businesses thrive, and we are so pleased to see the continuing strength of our robust local economy.
