In 1920, Pitney Bowes introduced the postage meter and launched an entire industry. More than 90 years later, the Stamford, CT-based company is a multi-billion dollar global technology company that helps both large enterprises and small-to-midsize businesses better connect with their customers and improve efficiency.
While most still associate the name Pitney Bowes with the postage meter, today the company offers a broad array of software, hardware and services in more than 100 countries, and serves some 2 million customers. The company boasts a proud tradition of innovation, and currently holds more than 3,000 active patents.
Pitney Bowes had revenues of $5.4 billion in 2010, and currently employs over 30,000 people worldwide. The company has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: PBI) since 1950, and is one of only 87 firms that have been members of the S&P 500 since 1957.
Pitney Bowes also prides itself on corporate citizenship and community involvement, having been named to Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s “100 Best Corporate Citizens” nine of the past ten years. The company is an industry leader in diversity, health care, environmental responsibility, and community investments. Through the Pitney Bowes Foundation, the company supports a variety of non-profit organizations, with a particular focus on literacy and education, and supports employee giving and volunteering.
“The New England Council raises the level of discourse in Washington, D.C. on a range of important issues to business, our communities, and citizens alike,” says David Nassef, Vice President, Government and Regulatory Affairs. Pitney Bowes values its membership in the New England Council because it allows us to join with other companies to spotlight the importance of our region to the American and global economy.”
