Washington SmartCEO celebrated companies making a difference in our region at the 2015 Cornerstone Awards, which took place on August 17, 2015 at the Bethesda Marriott. This year’s finalists and winners collectively generate more than $1 billion in annual revenue and employ nearly 6,000 individuals. Additionally, the 2015 Cornerstone Award finalists and winners were profiled in the July/August issue of Washington SmartCEO magazine.
Nearly 200 executives and decision-makers attended the high-energy lunch celebration to honor the 2015 Cornerstone Awards finalists and winners and their achievements. The event kicked off with a networking reception, which was followed by a video-packed awards presentation that commemorated each company for their contributions to their local communities and the region at large.
“It’s a great honor to be recognized for giving back to our local community in Prince George’s County. Thompson Creek’s community outreach is all done by the employees who do an excellent job researching opportunities and finding causes that don’t just need our financial contribution, but also our time. The way our employees rally around our charitable giving is a unique part of our company culture,” said Rick Wuest, President and CEO, Thompson Creek Window Company. “We don’t do it to earn the recognition – we do it because it’s the right thing to do and it makes our community a better place to live in.”
