Videon Selected as Finalist for Community Impact Award

State College, PA -- Videon has been selected as a finalist for the 2015 Governor’s ImPAct Awards. These awards are given by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Team Pennsylvania Foundation to businesses and individuals across Pennsylvania for enabling positive change in the state.

Videon is a finalist in the “Community Impact Award” category, which recognizes businesses that are dedicated to improving their local communities. In addition to employees' volunteer efforts and charitable activities, the Community Impact Award nomination specifically mentions Videon's commitment to supporting the local economic ecosystem.

Reinvigorating the local economy is a particular passion for Videon CEO Todd Erdley. He founded the Centre Region Entrepreneur Network to enable local entrepreneurs to network and support each other. He also helped launch the area’s 3B33 initiative - a drive to increase private industry annual output from $750 million to $3 billion by 2033. And finally, he is an ardent advocate for young entrepreneurs, particularly those in and evolving out of the Penn State ecosystem.

“Videon’s charitable and economic development work have been a central part of the company culture,” said Todd. “We are delighted to be a finalist for an award recognizing those efforts and highlighting the impact that businesses can have on their local communities. The ultimate goal is for all these efforts to create a more balanced economy for Centre County and make our region a better place to live and work.”

Governor Tom Wolf will recognize Videon and announce the winners of the Governor’s ImPAct Awards at a luncheon on Thursday, May 21, 2015 at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
