Meridian Finance Group was recognized with the President’s “E” Award for making significant contributions to U.S. exports and international trade. The award was presented to Meridian’s President Gary Mendell by Penny Pritzker, the U.S. Secretary of Commerce.

The “E” Award was created by President John F. Kennedy in 1961 to acknowledge companies that strengthen the US economy and create jobs by increasing exports. At the “E” Award ceremony, Secretary Pritzker applauded Meridian for supporting over $1 billion dollars of new U.S. export business each year.

Meridian Finance Group provides trade finance tools that exporters can use to expand their international sales, including export credit insurance, cross-border equipment financing, foreign buyer credit lines, political risk insurance, supply chain financing, international leasing, L/C insurance and other services.
