Fall 2023 Leading EDGE Awards


In 2022, we welcomed Cold Point Corporation, Orgill, The Lahinch Group, Water Safari, and Wolfspeed as Leading EDGE awardees. Indium Corporation’s William (Bill) N. Macartney III was posthumously recognized as a Christopher P. Destito awardee, as colleagues and family spoke to his enduring legacy. This event combined the best of networking and formal programming. Our attendees had a chance to reconnect, make new connections, and celebrate regional economic growth.

As the Mohawk Valley region continues its upward trajectory, the Leading EDGE Awards continue to celebrate regional economic success. From tourism to manufacturing, semiconductor chip production to community outreach, this event’s awardee list has spanned multiple sectors. Now in its double-decade years, this fundraising event is in recognition of those working to further– and sustain– our economic landscape.
