[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]WASHINGTON, DC | October 22, 2013 – Technical and Project Engineering, LLC (TAPE), an Inc. 500 | 5000 fastest-growing company, announced today that it has been named the 2013 Leadership Business of the Year within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan business community. This is the second consecutive year that Leaders Portfolio has recognized TAPE with this honor. This year’s recognition comes as the government service provider celebrates 10 years in the industry.
Companies and business leaders that earn Leaders Portfolio Awards display a noteworthy commitment to operating within a framework of leadership and ethics. In her congratulatory letter to TAPE, Dr. Rebecca Blacksmith, the host of Leaders Portfolio, emphasized that the determining factor in selecting TAPE was the company’s commitment to leadership during its years of challenges, successes, and failures.
“TAPE has distinguished itself in this regard time and time again, and is humbled to receive this accolade for the second year in a row,” said Louisa L. Jaffe, TAPE CEO and President.
“In addition to this honor, we are proud to celebrate our 10th year in business,” Jaffe added. “Because of this anniversary, the premise and criteria behind this award has a special significance, as we could not have accomplished what we have over the past 10 years without the hard work and dedication of our valued employees.”
Leaders Portfolio is an interview show offered online and on the radio featuring interviews with business leaders who share leadership and company success stories. The Leaders Portfolio Award was created to allow CEOs to nominate colleagues, employees to reward bosses, business to recognize clients, and listeners to identify business leaders. A panel of judges, which includes members of the Leaders Portfolio team and hand-selected business/policy leaders along with leadership experts, independently scores each nominee and selects a winner. Award winners were selected based on an applicant’s stated past leadership experience.
