  • Philadelphia, PA-NJ (1888PressRelease) April 07, 2015 - On May 6, 2015, nearly 300 local C-level executives and guests are expected to fill Philadelphia's Ballroom at the Ben. These guests represent 30 of the top family businesses in the Greater Philadelphia Area, and they will be honored at the 2015 Family Business Awards held by SmartCEO.

    Businesses of all sizes are recognized at this event for their achievements and commitment to family values. Growth often forces business owners to make tough decisions, and a family-oriented focus can be difficult to preserve. That might be why there are only five honorees in the "large" business category.

    Allied Wire and Cable is one of those five "large" companies.

    Owned and operated by the Flynn brothers and family friend Chris Burke, Allied Wire and Cable has a "family first" policy and actively works to make sure their employees feel that they are valued. It's not just words - a profit sharing program and 401k matching are proof that Allied is invested in their people. Every year, the child of an employee receives a college scholarship. Organized company outings encourage relationships and bonds uncommon in larger organizations.

    That same focus on their own people carries over to their customer service approach. They pledge to "Make It Personal," which is why they do not have an automated phone system, despite the company's size. It is also why every customer gets their own individual account representative to assist them personally.

    President of SmartCEO Events Jaime Nespor says that Allied and all the honorees are "dedicated ambassadors representing the American dream," as they demonstrate dedication to excellence successfully balanced with maintaining family values.

    The Family Business Awards event will celebrate the honorees with a reception, awards ceremony, and profile in the May/June issue of Philadelphia SmartCEO magazine.
