- WINSLOW, IL – Mitek has been recognized as this year’s recipient of the Illinois Governor Export Award for its achievements in international trade. This prestigious award is a testament to Mitek’s superior position in the global free trade marketplace and its outstanding performance in difficult economic times, especially when faced with government policies and regulations against free trade.
“This is a great achievement for all of the Mitek partners worldwide. We are humbled to receive this prestigious award and very proud of our Illinois heritage. From the same hollowed grounds where Abraham Lincoln debated Stephen Douglas on the issue of right versus wrong and is still exemplified everyday, Illinois embodies a free people who live free, work free, and trade free,” says Loyd Ivey, President and CEO of Mitek.
The award was presented to Mitek on behalf of the World Trade Center Illinois and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity in a ceremony in Chicago. Mitek was selected as the leading mid-sized manufacturing company and recognized as a local business with Illinois ties, making far-reaching strides in the worldwide corporate community.
