“It’s a great honor to be among those firms whose contributions are regarded as key to Wisconsin’s economic growth and vitality,” said Eric Jorgensen, President and CEO of JX. This year is the 10th time since the inception of the award in 2003 that JX has been recognized. In addition, the medium and heavy-duty truck dealer is up 3 spots from last year’s list.
“It is a challenge to stay on the list in light of some of the successful companies in the area. For us to improve a few positions over last year is a nice reflection on what our employees have been able to accomplish,” says Mark Muskevitsch, CFO at JX.
The award recognizes more than just revenue. The ranking is also based off each organization’s charitable giving to their local communities, as well as the overall contributions to Wisconsin’s economy.
“Many of the other organizations donate to various causes, but what makes JX unique is the level of involvement our employees have with those initiatives. Our charitable efforts are selected and driven by our employees and their desire to make an impact in the communities that we serve,” says Rich Yezzi, Vice President of Human Resources at JX.
At the 2015 Wisconsin 75 Recognition Breakfast, on Tuesday, October 6, Muskevitsch and Yezzi were presented with the company’s award. The events was held at Pier Wisconsin in Milwaukee.
“The award ceremony provided us with an opportunity to collaborate with, and learn from, some of the finest organizations out there,” says Yezzi. “It is a true honor to belong in that group.”
