2019 Leadership Awards Dinner
Thursday, April 11, 2019 | Grand Hyatt Washington

Leadership Greater Washington is thrilled to host its 2019 Leadership Awards Dinner on April 11, 2019 at the Grand Hyatt Washington. Bringing together more than 500 of the region’s most forward-thinking leaders from multiple industries, the LGW Leadership Awards Dinner serves as the largest celebration of diverse, cross-sector changemakers in our region. Over three decades, LGW has continued to convene the area’s most accomplished influencers across professions and geographies, uniting them for a shared purpose: furthering community impact and advancing leadership collaboration to solve our region’s toughest problems.  

 

Honoring Alex Orfinger ('98)

This year, LGW will proudly honor Alex Orfinger (LGW Class of ’98), Executive Vice President of American City Business Journals and former publisher of the Washington Business Journal, with the 2019 LGW Leader of the Years award. For close to two decades, Alex’s leadership propelled the Washington Business Journal into one of the top-performing business journals in the country, and placed regionalism at the forefront of business and community development. He currently serves as the board chair for Jubilee Housing and remains an engaged member of the LGW community. His generosity, influence and extraordinary leadership in the region have made him a powerful voice and force for change.
