Phillips Edison & Company Announces Sponsorship with The SCORE Foundation

CINCINNATI, Sept. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Phillips Edison & Company, Inc. (Nasdaq: PECO) (“PECO” or the “Company”), one of the nation’s largest owners and operators of grocery-anchored neighborhood shopping centers, today announced it is building on its commitment to small businesses through a new sponsorship with The SCORE Foundation (the “Foundation”), the philanthropic arm of SCORE, the nation's largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors. Funding from the sponsorship will help support The SCORE Foundation’s free mentor network and education programs for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

The partnership reinforces PECO’s commitment to its Neighbors – what the Company calls its retail tenants. With more than 2,500 local Neighbors located across PECO’s portfolio of 274 neighborhood shopping centers, the Company fosters prosperous small business communities across the U.S.

“Many of our Neighbors are locally owned small businesses, and we are constantly looking for ways to help invest in their success and provide resources to help them thrive,” said Katelyn Wloszek, Senior Director of Customer Experience at PECO. “Through the Foundation, our Neighbors have access to a variety of educational programs and expert mentorship from some of the nation’s top business leaders across industries and functions. We are honored to partner with the Foundation and thrilled to bring additional support to our local Neighbors, who are integral to the communities they serve.”

Last year, more than 228,000 entrepreneurs and small business owners participated in the Foundation’s national webinars on a myriad of business operations topics, and nearly 280,000 free mentoring sessions took place, providing one-on-one expert advice and coaching. PECO plans to make the Foundation’s free mentoring and education programs available to its local Neighbors through the ID Plans Tenant Portal. Neighbors will have access to webinars, mentor matching programs, workshops and other educational materials.
