A not so shameless plug here as we'd like to toot our own horn--as we honor others. Last night, CNBC held it's third annual Executive Leadership Awards dinner--to recognize business leaders who make a difference. The event was at the Pierre Hotel in New York City--and CNBC's Melissa Lee covered it for "Squawk Box."
And the award goes to--(well, unlike the oscars, the winners knew who they were) for Entrepreneurial Excellence Herb Kelleher, Chairman of Southwest Airlines. Business Leader of The Future went to Sallie Krawcheck of Citigroup. William Weldon--CEO of Johnson & Johnson was awarded for Leader in Business Practices. George David, CEO of United Technologies was honored for Leader in Human Capital Practices and Leader in Innovation went to Eric Schmidt of Google.
