Next Thursday, I am scheduled to present a Spirit of St. Louis award to Gateway EDI.
The Mayor’s Spirit of St. Louis award recognizes businesses that make special commitments to the City. In Gateway EDI’s case, it is a decision to move almost 100 employees into the One Financial Plaza Building and an agreement to add at least another 65 employees over the next several years.
When I walked through the new space, I noticed that it easily has room for more than 200 employees. Since Gateway EDI has been recognized as one of the region’s fastest growing companies and as one of the best places to work, I’m hoping that they will use all the space. And, if they do, I’m sure we can add an oak leaf cluster to their new award.
