Last night, November 7, 2019, FTI was honored to be named as the Dayton Business Journal’s 2019 Community Supporter Business of the Year.   The Dayton Business Journal hosts the award event every year in Dayton’s Schuster Center.  This black-tie gala brings the local business community together for a night of fellowship in order to honor the achievements of local businesses in the Dayton community.

FTI’s company culture is governed by our beliefs: Core Values, Commitment, Compassion, and Charity (the 4 Cs).  FTI focuses its corporate culture and passion on the motto of the 4th C, “Love Thy Neighbor.”  The company and its employees are committed to caring for and supporting the communities in which they live and work and where our offices exist.  (Pictured to the left is CEO Ron Shroder with fellow employees who participate in the 4th C representing the many others who serve at FTI.)

FTI’s 4th C efforts in the local Dayton area were catalysts for the nomination of Community Supporter Business of the Year.  Through FTI’s 4th C Committee, which governs the charity aspects of FTI, the company supported numerous efforts intended to positively affect the Dayton community.  The 4th C supported a Dayton Strong T-shirt Campaign from which all the proceeds went to help those affected by the Memorial Day Tornadoes and Oregon District Shooting.  One of the most exciting 4th C efforts in the Dayton area is the participation and funding of the Dayton Honor Flight.  Employees volunteered to support Dayton Honor Flight with more than 40 Guardians and by funding an entire flight of over 110 veterans this year.  This event has become a highlight and pinnacle for the activities of the 4th C, as it brings together employees from across the country.

It was an honor for FTI to be one of the three nominees for this award, and a wonderful surprise to be named the Community Supporter Business of the Year.  FTI is honored by this award.  Click here to see CEO Ron Shroder’s acceptance speech on behalf of the FTI employees who volunteer their time and resources for the 4th C.

Thank you Dayton Business Journal for this great award, which truly honors the 4th C.  The honor and credit go to the great employees who freely give of their time and resources to support the 4th C and local charitable efforts.
