The Mississippi World Trade Center honored Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics Corporation, with its Guy Tozzoli "Peace Through Trade" Distinguished Leadership Award at its annual meeting in Jackson, Miss.

"This award has a special meaning," said Liles Williams, former Mississippi World Trade Center president and current Board treasurer. "It was created to honor a company or leader who best demonstrates the goals of the World Trade Center: promoting peace and stability through international commerce. Hartley Peavey keeps raising the bar for international companies, and he is a constant role model for Mississippi entrepreneurs."

"I appreciate this recognition," said Peavey, "but I only started this company. All of this certainly was not just my doing, so on behalf on everyone at Peavey Electronics, I thank you for this award. When I started this company 38 years ago, people said, 'Hartley, you're crazy.' Maybe they were right. If someone told me we would be putting audio systems in Heathrow Airport's new terminal in London or in the Sydney Opera House, I would've thought they were crazy, too, but that's exactly what we've done."

Peavey and keynote speaker James Bagley, chairman and CEO of Lam Research Corporation, also addressed specific problems facing Mississippi and the United States, including the growing trade deficit with overseas nations and the exporting of American manufacturing jobs. "The challenge has been significant in the past, but it will be even greater in the future," said Peavey. "Today, our competitors are China and Indonesia. We're not just competing with companies, but with countries. It's a battle we can win. There's an old song that goes, 'You can make it if you try.' Peavey Electronics is an example of the truth of those words."
