PITTSBURGH, PA, November 9, 2021 — The U.S. Department of Commerce awarded AGI, an Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) company, the 2021 President’s “E” Award for Exports. The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.
“AGI has demonstrated a sustained commitment to export expansion. The “E” Awards Committee was very impressed with AGI’s innovation in design of products and services for export. The company’s use of U.S. Government advocacy services was also particularly notable. AGI’s achievements have undoubtedly contributed to national export expansion efforts that support the U.S. economy and create American jobs,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo in her congratulatory letter to the company announcing its selection.

AGI software enables users to create a digital mission model that brings the operational environment into all phases of the life cycle – engineering, testing, and operations. Whether launching and operating a satellite, planning and executing a deep-space mission, or analyzing geospatial data, AGI’s software reduces risk, lowers costs, and accelerates development and testing efforts.
“AGI's success in export expansion is due in large part to our export compliance officer, Barbara Vesely,” said Paul Graziani, co-founder of AGI. “Her leadership in export compliance has strengthened every AGI employees' commitment to the standards that AGI has established. Her deep understanding of trade compliance enables AGI to provide a portfolio of tools across different export classifications to a global market."
The Department honored 70 U.S. companies and organizations from across the country for their role in strengthening the U.S. economy by sharing American ingenuity outside of our borders. The ceremony was held to jointly recognize awardees from 2021 (31 entities) and 2020 (39 entities).
