The 2020 NJBIZ ICON Awards will see leaders from New Jersey’s accounting, health care, financial services, commercial real estate industries, and more, recognized for work throughout their careers not just in their respective fields, but in the state’s larger business community.
On Aug. 18, NJBIZ will honor this year’s ICON honorees during a virtual presentation beginning at 8:00 a.m.
Winners were chosen by a panel of independent judges, following an open nomination process for business leaders from across New Jersey over the age of 60.
Keep an eye on our Events Page here for more information, and to register to take part.
