PacStar, a leading developer and supplier of advanced communications solutions, today announced that CEO Peggy Miller has been named a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 Award in the Pacific Northwest region. Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., the program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while also transforming our world.
Miller was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special black tie gala event on Friday, June 14 at the King Street Ballroom & Perch in Seattle, Wash.
Being recognized as a finalist for this prestigious award is an honor not just for me, but for the entire team here at PacStar, Miller said. The success that weve had in growing this company to where it is today was only possible because of the dedication and determination of all of our employees who are helping to build products that save lives. Our products are designed to enhance mission-critical communications for incident response teams, government organizations, commercial customers, and the U.S. military in rugged, remote locations around the world.
Under Millers leadership, PacStar has won several multi-million dollar U.S. government programs of record including U.S. Army T2C2, U.S. Marines NOTM vehicle mount and NOTM Air network equipment, as well as a number of other large contracts including U.S. Army Europe, Security Force Assistance Brigades (SFAB), and Secure Wireless Command Post (SWCP). U.S. military and government agency programs operating in 24 countries have adopted PacStars solutions as their standard. PacStar has doubled company sales over the past four years and doubled company-wide employment with most employees based at the companys headquarters in Portland, Oregon. PacStars manufactures its products in Portland using U.S.-based and Northwest suppliers.
