Marriott International Presents the Ron Resh Award to Ike Leggett
June 8th, 2018
On Tuesday, June 5, at the 92nd annual Greater Bethesda Chamber of Commerce Installation & Awards Dinner in Bethesda, Maryland, Marriott International proudly presented the Ron Resh Business Advocate Award to three-term Montgomery County Executive Isiah “Ike” Leggett. Leggett has been part of countless civic and community organizations and his success made him an obvious choice for this recognition.
Marriott Vice President for Multicultural Affairs Apoorva Gandhi had the honor of presenting the award. In his remarks, Gandhi said, “We know that you advocate equally and vigorously for all of Montgomery County. Still, for Bethesda (and for Marriott), we couldn’t have a better advocate and leader. You have set a standard; a high bar for supporting business, development, and the community in Montgomery County for many years. Yours will truly be a tough act to follow.”
For nearly a century, the Installation & Awards Dinner has brought members of the community together to celebrate the Bethesda Chamber’s success and usher in the next year’s. The evening marked the installation of Jane Fairweather as the Chamber’s new chair. The Ron Resh Business Advocate Award is named after the late Ron Resh, a former public affairs consultant for the Chamber. This is the second year Marriott has been an award sponsor for the event.
