The City of Cambridge, Ohio, recently named Edgetech I.G. President Michael B. Hovan, its Person of the Year for his many contributions to the community.

In accepting the honor, Hovan credited the entire company, citing that all Edgetech employees deserve to be recognized for the good work they do every day.

“I am representing all of Edgetech because so many on our team are actively involved in making Cambridge a better place to live and work,” Hovan said. “Our company philosophy encourages employees to be passionate about their causes by giving them time off when needed to volunteer in the community. It is rare that companies are able to do this, but we feel that it is very important to give back.”

While Hovan is personally active in many community organizations, the Edgetech team collectively contributes time and resources to the United Way of Guernsey and Noble Counties, Relay for Life, the Cambridge YMCA, the Cambridge Main Street Project, the American Red Cross, the Guernsey Leadership program and the Police Benevolence Program, among others.

“This is a great honor, and I accept the award on behalf of the entire Edgetech team,” Hovan said. “We are grateful to the City of Cambridge and look forward to continuing our support of the community.”

Hovan grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio, area and currently makes his home in Dover, Ohio. He has been married to his wife Rhona for 18 years and they have two children, Mitchell, 15, and Marquette, 12. In his free time, Hovan enjoys spending time with his family.
