Brightpoint CEO Rings NASDAQ Bell

Brightpoint received some national exposure this morning in light of the Indianapolis/Plainfield company’s 20th anniversary. The Indy Star explains:

Brightpoint’s Chief Executive Robert J. Laikin will ring the NASDAQ opening bell today in New York to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Indianapolis-based wireless device distributor.

Laikin will ring at 9:30 a.m. at its MarketSite in Times Square.

"It’s a privilege to celebrate Brightpoint’s 20th anniversary and the continued success of the company by ringing the NASDAQ opening bell," said Laikin in a statement last month. "Since the birth of the company in 1989 and our debut as a NASDAQ-listed company in 1994, we’ve grown both in size and capabilities and made the Fortune 500 list in 2009."
