)-- The O’Neill Group has been honored by the Medina County Economic Development Corporation and sponsors Westfield Bank and COSE, with the title of “Corporate Citizen of the Year – Company” during the 2010 Medina County Business Awards (MCBA) presentation.
MCBA strives to recognize businesses and individuals that have achieved significant and positive results in terms of innovation, investment, sustainability and community involvement. This award honors the Medina County company that goes well beyond the minimum expectation of community service and was established to recognize outstanding civic contributions made to the Medina County community. The award encourages businesses that maintain a charitable environment and recognizes that all efforts by businesses both large and small make a difference in and around one’s community. The other finalists in this category were Buehlers Fresh Foods in Brunswick and Medina Hospital, a Cleveland Clinic Hospital.
Patrick O’Neill, President and CEO of The O’Neill Group accepted the award on behalf of the agency on October 28, 2010, at a ceremony held at Blair Center in Westfield Center, Ohio. A plaque with The O’Neill Group’s 2010 designation was presented by MCBA along with special certificates of recognition from John Boccieri, U.S. Representative, and Congresswoman Betty Sutton. This award comes on the heels of recent recognition of The O’Neill Group by Crain’s Cleveland Business and previous honors as the “Outstanding Business of the Year” by the Wadsworth Chamber of Commerce.
“It is a truly unexpected honor,” stated Patrick O’Neill of the award. “We feel very grateful to have even been considered as a nominee, let alone receive the award. Our team could not be more thrilled that their charitable efforts not only help those in our community who need it most, but have been recognized by the Medina County Business Awards this year.”
