July 30, 2010 — Foot Levelers recently graduated from Virginia Economic Development Partnership’s Virginia Leaders in Export Trade (VALET) program.
Launched in January 2002, the VALET program assists exporters in the Commonwealth who have firmly established domestic operations and are committed to international exporting as an expansion strategy. Participating firms are chosen based on their dedication to growth through export.
“The VALET program accelerates the development of international business by connecting companies with the practical tools needed for successful export sales,” said Leslie Parpart, VALET program manager. “These graduating companies have utilized all of the resources of the VALET program and have really challenged themselves to grow their international businesses. This class of companies worked extremely hard during a very tough international climate, and I am confident that they will see the return on their investment for years to come.”
“Foot Levelers was privileged to work with such an outstanding group of Virginia-based companies over the past two years,” said Foot Levelers’ Director of International Development Jamie Greenawalt. “Sharing best practices through VALET sponsored networking events gave us opportunities to share best practices with companies who were working through similar issues and to learn from those who had ‘been there, done that.’ We are eager to utilize this knowledge to leverage our brand globally.”
