Larry Triplett has been named the recipient of the 2016 Dick Johnson Civic Leadership Award. This award honors Muskingum County residents who combine outstanding achievements in business, community leadership and philanthropy, a rare combination exemplified by the late Richard O. Johnson.
The Award, established in 2000 through the efforts of Bob Kessler, will be presented to Triplett on Friday, January 29th, 2016, during the Groundhog Day celebration of the 31st anniversary of the Muskingum County Community Foundation.
Triplett co-founded Resource Systems, a healthcare software company, in 1980 immediately upon graduating from Muskingum College. He and his business partner, Greg Adams, built the company over a period of 31 years in which it became the premier provider of documentation software for the nursing home industry. It was on Inc. magazine’s list of the fastest growing companies in the nation. The company was acquired by Cerner Corporation in 2011 and continues to operate in New Concord, Ohio.
In 2004 Triplett was instrumental in forming the Muskingum County Business Incubator (MCBI), a non-profit business incubator that helps businesses expand, creating jobs and opportunities for people in the region. He served as Chairman of its board from 2004 to 2014 and now serves as its Executive Director.
n 2011 Triplett helped found the East Central Ohio Tech Angel Fund, a private/public collaborative that helps Southeastern Ohio’s entrepreneurs find private equity investors. The fund has been recognized as one of the best performing angel investment funds in the nation.
