16th Annual Ethics in Business & Community Award Finalists Announced

RecognizeGood is proud to announce the award finalists for the 16th Annual Ethics in Business & Community Awards.  Finalists were announced on CBS Austin’s “We Are Austin” show Friday morning. The previous day, RecognizeGood celebrated all award nominees for 2018 at a reception hosted by Concordia University Texas.  RecognizeGood board member and St. David’s Foundation CEO Earl Maxwell made the announcement alongside Concordia University Texas president and CEO Dr. Don Christian. This prestigious award recognizes the best in Central Texas leadership on the pillars of respect, fairness, honesty, justice, and sustainability.

Hand-selected students at Concordia University Texas vetted each nominee. Students scored each nominee based on phone interviews and their own research, narrowing this list down to 15 finalists (three in each of five categories). Next, the students will begin a rigorous, in-depth review of each finalist. Then, the students present their findings to an independent selection committee. This group, made up of hand-selected Leadership Austin alumni and board members, selects the final award recipients.

Finalists for the 16th Annual Ethics in Business & Community Awards are as follows:

The final awards will be announced at the annual awards luncheon on May 17, 2018.  It is attended each year by hundreds of Central Texas business leaders and is expected to draw more than 700 attendees in 2018. This year’s Honorary Chairs are Bobby Jenkins, President of ABC Home & Commercial Services, and Earl Maxwell, CEO of St. David’s Foundation.  For more information about the event, sponsorships and tickets, please click here.
