The Everest Award, the West Chester ▪ Liberty Chamber Alliance’s inaugural event honoring business leaders on the I-75 Growth Corridor, will take place Thursday evening at the Cincinnati Marriott North at Union Centre.
According to the chamber, the Everest Award, was created to focus attention on, and help market this emerging global economic center along I-75 with a focus on the people who helped shape it.
“A key area for the future development of southwestern Ohio is what we term the I-75 Growth Corridor, I-275 to I-675. The Everest Award, which signifies reaching the highest level of achievement and performance, brings regional and national attention to the leaders and legends that have made outstanding contributions to the growth of commerce and our communities in the I-75 growth corridor,” said Joe Hinson, president and CEO of the West Chester ▪ Liberty Chamber Alliance.
Honorees for the 2012 Everest Award include Lawrence Schumacher (president of Schumacher Dugan Construction), Rajesh K. Soin (chairman and CEO of Soin International) and James L. Wainscott (chairman, president and CEO of AK Steel).
