The Fairfax Chamber of Commerce has named the finalists for its Corporate Citizenship Award. The awards honor extraordinary business leadership and above-and-beyond corporate social responsibility. Winners will be announced at the organization’s Annual Chairman’s Luncheon on Thursday, June 4, at The Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner.
“We are honored to have been nominated for this award,” WBB’s CEO Bill McMullen said, whose company is a finalist in the mid-size business category. “We are excited to continue to bring people together for a great cause through our Warrior Gathering initiative.”
In partnership with local organizations, WBB annually raises funds for an all-expense paid retreat for injured service members and their families to bond and relieve the stresses of post-injury life.
