EDI Receives ComEd President's Award

ComEd hosted its second annual Supplier Diversity Awards on April 27th to recognize diverse suppliers such as EDI for exceptional performance in areas ranging from innovation and environmental stewardship to overall growth and performance. Leading up to the awards event, EDI President and Chief Operating Officer Claire M. Williams was interviewed by ComEd. You can view the video here.

It turned out to be a night that yielded two incredible honors for EDI. EDI received the President's Award, which is an award chosen by ComEd CEO Anne Pramaggiore to honor a ComEd diverse supplier who goes above and beyond on ComEd's job sites. 

A total of 76 companies competed for the diverse supplier awards held at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.

The awards acknowledge minority, veteran and women-owned suppliers for their increasingly important role in the ComEd's efforts to modernize its energy delivery system, which provides safe and reliable electricity to nearly 4 million customers in northern Illinois. 

Last year, EDI won the Community Partnership award at ComEd's inaugural event for diverse suppliers. EDI's late Founder and CEO Deborah Sawyer accepted that award on EDI's behalf. This year ComEd has renamed that award in Deborah's honor.  

"To be recognized for by ComEd in this way speaks to the talent, dedication, and expertise of the staff devoted to our ComEd and Exelon projects," said EDI Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Leslie J. Sawyer. "Everyday EDI project teams are striving for excellence in all that they do for our valued clients."
