At a reception on March 13, PPAI was honored by the Irving Heritage Society, the Chamber of Commerce and a group of more than 75 civic leaders as one of the 20 oldest businesses in Irving, Texas. The Association was established on November 20, 1903, and has been based in Irving in October 1979. At 109, PPAI was the oldest of the companies recognized at the reception. PPAI was presented the Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition by U.S. Congressman Kenny Marchant and The State of Texas House of Representatives’ special recognition by State Representative Linda Harper-Brown.
“We are truly humbled to be recognized among businesses with such rich histories,” says Paul Bellantone, CAE, PPAI president and CEO. “We continue to be grateful for all the Irving Heritage Society does to preserve that history, and the City of Irving and the community do to provide for a prosperous and supportive climate in which to work and do business.”
