The award, presented to him by former chairman Clifton Parker, is given to recognized industry leaders who make a significant contribution to the business community, the industry and the TCA. It is the highest award of recognition given by the association.

"To say that he is one of our ambassadors is truly an understatement," said Parker as he presented the award. "I can't think of anyone more deserving."
