Leadership Greater Washington has selected Washington, D.C. partner Michael Hawthorne to its class of 2014. Each year, the organization chooses approximately 50 participants for its 10-month Signature Program during which the inductees engage in intensive, in-depth discussions on regional issues with a group of regional peers. Individuals are selected based on professional experience and community involvement.
The group has competitively selected almost 1,400 top decision makers across the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia for the Signature Program since 1986.
Leadership Greater Washington aims to enable area leaders to find effective solutions to regional challenges through dynamic education and membership programs that promote dialogue, cooperation and involvement, according to the organization.
Hawthorne’s practice focuses on the corporate and securities needs of private and public businesses – from startups to multibillion-dollar enterprises – throughout the U.S. in the telecommunications, natural resources, health care, energy, restaurant and technology industries.
