Our business objective is to provide thought leadership to the MPS industry and to help clients with market intelligence, research and consulting. This award validates the confidence our customers have placed in Photizo Group to help them achieve their MPS goals," said Photizo Group CEO Ed Crowley.
Photizo Group's history of pioneering MPS achievements was highlighted in the company's submission during the award nomination process. These accomplishments include:
