Edwards Global Services (EGS) has been awarded the prestigious President’s “E” Star Award, the highest recognition given by the government to companies that make a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. In 2011, the Irvine, California-based international consultancy was awarded the President’s “E” Award for Export Services.

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker presented the award at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., in May to EGS’s founder and CEO William Edwards and COO Michelle McClurg.

“The President’s ‘E’ Award winners are outstanding American businesses and organizations that have played
a crucial role in strengthening and growing our economy through increased U.S. exports,” said Secretary Pritzker. “Exports are critical to our nation’s competitiveness in the global marketplace and solidify our country’s economic leadership across the globe.”

Founded in 2001, EGS assists U.S.-based franchisors expand their concepts overseas. The firm has both a U.S.-based executive team and in-country associates in 32 countries.
