About the Executive Management Awards

The Executive Management Awards program recognizes the leadership and accomplishments of the region’s management all-stars — CFOs, CIOs/CTOs, Chief Legal Offices/General Counsels, Chief Human Resources Officers, and other C-suite executives. These individuals uphold the highest ethics, lead collaboratively and creatively, and enhance and support the organization’s mission. An independent committee of local business leaders reviews the EMA nominations, and winners are chosen based on the quality of the nominations submitted. EMA winners are profiled in the March/April issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards reception in March.
