Virginia Business magazine has named Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA), as its 2010 “Virginia Business Person of the Year.”
The award recognizes a leader whose work has transformed a company, an industry or a sector of the commonwealth’s economy. Gordon is the cover story of the magazine’s December issue, which also features a profile of Fairfax County as a business location. Gordon will also be recognized on December 4 as the Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s 2010 Economic Development Professional of the Year. The chamber is honoring Gordon and other members of the regional business community at its annual Poinsettia Festival Awards Dinner & Dance to be held at Gallaudet University in Washington. In April 2010 the Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce presented Gordon with a 2010 Bridge Builder Award for his work to diversify the Fairfax County business community and economy.
