Signature Worldwide Honored with
Excellence in Exporting Award


COLUMBUS, OH (July 26, 2005) — Signature Worldwide, a provider of training and business building solutions, recently received the Ohio Excellence in Exporting Award (“E” Award). The award, given by Ohio Governor Bob Taft, recognizes Ohio companies that have displayed outstanding growth in the international and domestic marketplace.
Since its inception, Signature has implemented training in every U.S. state and served more than 5,000 clients worldwide across a multitude of industries. During the past three years, the company’s export revenue has grown 37 percent, due largely in part to its international licensing program.

Signature’s innovative licensing program enables organizations worldwide to provide Signature services at the local level, customized for regional customs and languages. The company currently has international licensees in North America, South America, Asia, Europe, and Africa representing 40 countries. 

All international licensees are required to complete an intensive training program at the company’s 

Ohio Governor Bob Taft
and Steven Wolever
headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. 

“With the growth of the global economy, we recognize the importance of creating an international presence by forming strategic partnerships with organizations all over the world,” said Steven D. Wolever, president and CEO, Signature Worldwide. “By licensing entrepreneurs in other countries and training them to incorporate our services in their local markets, we continue to build on our successful base in the U.S. and create new jobs both locally and abroad.” 

Signature is currently reviewing additional foreign licensee opportunities, and hopes to cover the globe by the end of 2008.
