The Executive Excellence Awards program is the Pacific Northwest’s premier C-suite leadership event. It recognizes Washington executives who have demonstrated extraordinary, consistent leadership in guiding their companies or nonprofit organizations to success. Previous honorees include names that read like a regional who's who of CEOs, CFOs, CTOs, etc.
Winners were announced at an awards gala on January 23, 2020 at Museum of Flight and are not featured in the January/February issue of Seattle Business magazine.
