Washington, D.C., partner Bennett B. Borden was honored as a Power Player of the Year at the Washington SmartCEO Power Players Awards on September 16.

The Power Players Awards program honors the region’s most enterprising attorneys, bankers and accountants for their leadership, accomplishment, innovation and success. Power Players represent the best and brightest in the region — the impact players that CEOs can count on to help grow their businesses. An independent committee of local business leaders evaluates the applications and chooses the Power Players based on the quality of nominations submitted.

Out of 45 Power Players profiled in the September/October issue of SmartCEO magazine, 15 Power Players of the Year were announced live at the September 16 event, with more than 250 business professionals and executives in attendance.
