Since 2014, the Pittsburgh Smart 50 Awards recognize the top executives of the 50 smartest companies in the Greater Pittsburgh region for their ability to effectively build and lead successful organizations. All 50 winners will be honored at a special celebration, and three organizations will receive specialty awards for their achievements in three category areas – innovation, impact and sustainability. Additionally, all guests will be treated to a keynote address on what it takes to lead a successful “smart” company.
The Smart 50 Awards currently takes place in the cities of Cleveland, Columbus and Pittsburgh.
Eligible Smart 50 nominees must be a top executive of an organization with a physical office in the Greater Pittsburgh region. Specialty award winners will be recognized for Innovation, Impact and Sustainability.
