Laurie Edwards-Tate is honored as a finalist at the Most Admired CEO Awards Event, Thursday, December 5, 2013, located at the beautiful Paradise Point Island Resort.

Nominated by California State Senator Mark Wyland, Edwards-Tate was among an elite group of San Diego businesspersons to receive recognition and an award for her nomination.

Accordng to Edwards-Tate:  “It was exciting attending this event, and humbling to be among an exclusive group of exceptional San Diegans.  Though not an award recipient in the Privately-Held category, being the recipient of Senator Mark Wyland’s nomination was a true honor.”

The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to the most deserving, venerable Ken Blanchard of The Blanchard Companies.

“Meeting Dr. Blanchard face-to-face with the opportunity to speak with him was the highlight of the evening for me,” said Edwards-Tate. “Studying his leadership and management principles while in graduate school many years ago helped shape my leadership style today. He was on my bucket list of individuals I most wished to meet and was finally able to do so.”

Thanks to the San Diego Business Journal for continuing to be one of San Diego’s strongest voices on behalf of the business community, and for showcasing all the dynamic businesses and business leaders who enrich San Diego’s economy today, providing role models for the business leaders of tomorrow.
