Business, nonprofit and political leaders gathered at The National Thursday to honor the recipients of the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce's 2017 Community Leadership Awards.

“These awards honor individuals and businesses that have demonstrated the highest level of commitments and support and leadership to the Loudoun County community and your citizens,” chamber President and CEO Tony Howard said.

A panel of top Loudoun business and nonprofit leaders selected five winners from a pool of 19 finalists from categories including large and small businesses, nonprofit executive, executive leaders and young professionals.

Chauvon McFadden of Crimson Wealth Strategies won the leadership award in the young professional category; Pam Jones of Extraordinary Transitions – Long & Foster took home the executive leader award; Palmercare Chiropractic was given the leadership award from the small organization category; AH&T Insurance won the leadership award from the large organization category; and Lynn Tadlock, deputy executive director of giving at The Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, walked away with the leadership award in the nonprofit executive category.

First-year Chamber Chairwoman Tina R. Johnson, president and CEO of JP Events and Consulting, addressed the crowd and spoke of the significant contributions small businesses play in the community.

“When we use our purchasing power to partner with local small businesses,we are essentially giving money back to the local economy and community,” Johnson said. “And, yes, your spending dollar does have a direct impact on your community. Think local, think Loudoun.”

The chamber also recognized Ranna Golden of Paychex as the 2016 Ambassador of the Year. Four people were also presented the Chairman’s Awards: Dave Trosko of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management; Mindy Carlin of Access Point Public Affairs; Dave Jones of Long & Foster; and Chris Browne, who recently retired as airport manager for Dulles Airport.

The event also recognized five nonprofit organizations to which the chamber awarded $2,000 in grants earlier in January. Those included Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington, Crossroads Jobs, Friends of Loudoun Mental Health, Mason Enterprise Center Loudoun and the Windy Hill Foundation.
