The Leadership Achievement Awards celebrates the iconic individuals and institutions that embody the vibrancy and vitality of New York City and the many reasons people travel here from around the world, whether as first-time tourists or repeat visitors. The NYC & Company Foundation honors their contributions to the City and all they've done to support the excitement and energy that makes New York City great.
