Moreover, they have become part of the fabric of the communities in which they reside,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO Events. “These companies are economic drivers, innovators and exemplary community stewards — they are true cornerstones of their communities. For that, we honor them.” 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 honored each company for their contributions to their local communities and the region at large. In addition, Philadelphia City was named the Landmark Award winner. The Landmark Award is presented to the county or community making the most investment in helping its local companies succeed.
