Secretary of State’s Award for Corporate Excellence

The Garrigan Lyman Group partnered with TOMS shoes to hire me as their private photographer to document the Secretary of State’s Award for Corporate Excellence which happened this last wednesday, December 9th in the Benjamin Franklin Room at the Department of State. Because I wasn’t press, I had the opportunity to hang out with the award winners, ambassadors, and other high profile award attendees before and after the ceremony, and let me tell you, it was awesome!!!
The winners were chosen because of their philanthropic business practices in third world countries. For every one pair of TOMS shoes sold, winner Blake Mycoskie of TOMS shoes promises to send one pair of shoes to children in countries such as Argentina, Ethiopia, China etc.  John Stanton and Brad Horowitz of Trilogy International Partners worked with Wyclef Jean to bring free internet access to people in Haiti.  Below you will see a number of photos of the award winners with Secretary Hillary Clinton, Singer/Song writer Wyclef Jean, Under Secretary Robert Hormats  and Zac Hanson of the musical group Hanson (yes, mmmmm-bop).
I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them!
