Smart Business Magazine bestows this elite recognition to the top executives of the 50 "smartest" companies for their ability to effectively build and lead successful organizations. Ewing and COE Distributing have been featured on the list nine times.
The Pittsburgh Smart 50 winners were recognized at a luncheon on November 29 highlighting regional leaders in innovation, impact and sustainability.
