“The determining factor in becoming a winner was the applicant’s commitment to leadership while challenged with successes and failures. Whether it be a merger that didn’t pan out or success with national expansion, or whether the applicant had trouble obtaining financing or success in meeting revenue goals, the judges looked for a commitment to leadership no matter the scenario.”
–Dr. Rebecca Blacksmith
Leaders Portfolio wishes to thank our sponsors for their support (Hilton Garden Inn of Fairfax, VA, Dennis Kowal Architects, Green Tree Surgeons, The Riverwalk Development, and Wow Services Group), as well as, congratulate our 2013 Leaders Portfolio Award Winners. Judges graded applicants based on the quality of their answers to a variety of leadership questions: What responsibility does the leader have to their community? What is the most unrecognized aspect of your leadership? When has the business faced a public ethical dilemma and responded incorrectly in your estimation? What is the leadership philosophy of your business?
