This month’s Herald Business Journal highlights three people and one company whose achievements have helped create a better community or advance economic interests in the region.
The four are recipients of Economic Alliance Snohomish County’s annual awards. The winners were honored April 26 at the group’s Economic Forecast and Annual Meeting at the Tulalip Resort Casino.
The Henry M. Jackson Award is named for the former U.S. senator from Everett. Established in 1977, the award honors someone who demonstrates exemplary service to the community and is committed to the business interests of the region. This individual drives local, state and regional initiatives for business; promotes civic, social and cultural programs; and participates in programs that expand the potential and quality of life in the county. This year’s recipient is Tom Lane, CEO of Dwayne Lane’s Auto Family.
The John M. Fluke Sr. Award is named for the founder of the Fluke Corp., the Everett-based industrial test-measurement company. The award is given annually to an individual who has demonstrated entrepreneurial spirit, and business and community leadership, coupled with significant community contribution and commitment. It was established in 1970. This year’s recipient is Dom Amor, retired Tribal Relations Manager at Puget Sound Energy.
The Elson S. Floyd Award is named for the former Washington State University president who played a key role in establishing the WSU Everett campus. The award aims to honor a visionary leader who, through partnership, tenacity and a strong commitment to community, has created lasting opportunities, especially for those who have traditionally been under-served, that improve the quality of life and positively impact the trajectory of the regional economy. This year’s recipient is Janice Greene, president, NAACP Snohomish County.
The Opportunity Lives Here Award recognizes an organization which brings innovation and creates opportunities locally and regionally. This year’s winner is Workforce Snohomish, which serves job seekers and employers.
A request for nominations appeared on Economic Alliance’s website earlier this year. Nominations were collected using an online survey. Winners were then selected using a similar online survey.
