CONCORD — The Charlotte Business Journal on Wednesday awarded Integro President Shawn Campion with its Emerging Leader Award.

Campion received the honor during the business journal’s third-annual Advanced Manufacturing Awards. Also nominated in the same category was Phuong Nguyen, the president and owner of Charlotte-based Quality Electronic Manufacturing Services.

On its website, the business journal describes the awards ceremony as recognizing and celebrating process excellence, leadership and collaboration in Advanced Manufacturing displayed in our region during 2014.

“It is a great honor to be recognized individually by the Charlotte Business Journal, but everything we do at Integro is a team effort and is a direct reflection of our staff’s dedication and perseverance to solve difficult industrial problems and to participate and invest in the local community,” Campion said in a news release.
