"It's a true honor to be recognized by the chamber. With the talent and resources available in Columbus, I couldn't imagine being in business anywhere else," said Leader. "The economy has been a challenge for many businesses and growing our company during this demanding time has been difficult, but rewarding. It's wonderful that we are being recognized for our hard work."
