Harrisburg, PA, April 7, 2015 — Sam Coyl, President and CEO of Netrepid, is being recognized for creating jobs that pay and for his contributions to economic impact within the commonwealth as part of the third annual Governor’s ImPAct Awards. Awards will be presented at a ceremony at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pa. on May 21, 2015.
“I’d like to thank everyone involved in nominating me for this honor,” said Coyl. “Although I have some visibility here, our team at Netrepid has worked tirelessly to get us where we are today. They make sure what I do is successful behind the scenes, and I greatly appreciate their dedication and commitment.”
