Nearly 400 business leaders last week attended the Moxie Award ceremony and dinner to recognize boldness in business by growing businesses, nonprofits and associations in the Washington, D.C., area.
The event, held Nov. 5 at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, announced 14 winners chosen from over 130 finalists for making a difference in the marketplace with their bold initiatives, strategic market moves and moxie.
