MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – “Minnesota Business” magazine has honored Accent Signage Systems and its late founder with two awards for their contributions to local and international business.

Accent Signage was presented with a “Community Impact Award” for the company’s innovative ways of offering services and products in an environmentally-friendly fashion.

Founder Reuven Rahamim posthumously received the “Progress Minnesota Award” for his patented technology which is used in signs around the world.

Rod Grander, Accent’s CFO and interim general manager, accepted the “Community Impact Award” on behalf of the company.

“We owe so much to our founder and president, the late Reuven Rahamim, for his 30 years of leadership in the company and community,” Grander said.

Rahamim and four others were killed on Sept. 27 of last year by employee Andrew Engeldinger – who also wounded three others at Accent Signage Systems before turning the gun on himself. It was the deadliest workplace shooting in Minnesota history.
