Roger Penske to be Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom
Added: 21 June 2019
It was announced by President Donald Trump that Roger Penske will be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian award of the United States. It recognises those people who have made "an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavours."
Below is a statement from Roger on receiving the honour:
“It is truly an honor to be recognized by President Trump and awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. I am humbled by the President’s acknowledgement of our achievements in business, in motorsports and in our community. Thank you to President Trump for this special recognition. On behalf of my wife Kathy (Penske), our family and our nearly 65,000 team members worldwide, it will be my privilege to accept this prestigious award.”
We’re sure we speak for everyone at the Agnew Group when we say that we are proud and privileged to have such an inspirational leader as Roger as our Chairman and, that we are all hugely proud to be part of Team Penske. Congratulations once again on this fantastic achievement.
