Brodsky, Greenberg, Inducted in Coop Hall of Fame

Manchester, NH, May 27, 2009--The Cooperative Development Foundation inducted Howard Brodsky and the late Alan Greenberg into the Cooperative Hall of Fame in Washington, D.C. earlier this month.

Brodsky and Greenberg, co-Founders of CCA Global Partners, were inducted in a formal ceremony at the National Press Club. Brodsky is currently chairman and Co-CEO of CCA Global Partners.

Greenberg, died in 2007, was a dynamic leader of CCA for more than two decades.

Established by the National Cooperative Business Association (Washington, DC), the Hall of Fame commemorates a legacy of cooperation in America, honoring “genuinely heroic contributions to the cooperative idea, and the advancement of the principles of cooperation in the United States.”

The two co-founders of CCA Global Partners shared a dream to empower and enrich the lives of entrepreneurs. The result of their dream is now one of the largest cooperatives in the United States, with 15 independent businesses in four countries and over 3,800 locations producing $10-billion in aggregate annual sales.

Brodsky observed, “I know Alan would agree that this award is a reflection of our outstanding team at CCA Global Partners who helped build our organization, and who keep us running day in, day out. The CCA story is one of passion, commitment, and belief that we can make a difference in the lives of family businesses."
