NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF (April 12, 2021)  The Association for Corporate Growth - Orange County chapter ("ACG-OC") today released its list of 27 finalists for the professional advisory organization’s 26th Annual ACG Awards. Each will be honored June 10 through a hybrid virtual/live presentation featuring the theme “Excellence Reimagined,” a tribute to the extraordinary adaptation these companies demonstrated in the wake of the global pandemic.
