CDA CEO Jin Kim Wins #GameChangers Award from Innovation Tri-Valley

Ceremony Honors Innovative Companies in Marketing/Advertising, Pharmaceuticals, Biotech, Software Development, and Sustainability

Pleasanton, CA — Last night, business leaders from across the San Francisco Bay Area’s Tri-Valley region (responsible for more than $42 billion annually) honored select innovative companies in mobile marketing/advertising, pharmaceuticals, biotech, software development, and sustainability.

In recognition of the region’s leadership in Bay Area entrepreneurship, Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group honored nine businesses that are changing the landscape here and elsewhere and, in the process, creating a better world while enjoying the quality of life available in this region.

United States Congressman Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15) said of the event:

“The Tri-Valley has been transformed from a sleepy suburbia into a buzzing hive of innovation – I couldn’t be prouder to sing our region’s praises in Washington and in my travels around the country. Our community’s economy, its diversity, and its willingness to adapt, disrupt, and improve is having an impact from coast to coast, and the #GameChangers are right at the vanguard.”
