Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) president and CEO Jennifer Taylor has been awarded the George Mason University’s School of Business Distinguished Alumni Award.
Taylor, who earned a master of business administration degree at Mason in 1998, “epitomizes the career and growth opportunities that a degree from Mason can yield for all of its students, regardless of their background or stage in life,” university president Gregory Washington said.
“My learning experience at Mason’s School of Business has reaped so many rewards for me over my 30-year career in our region,” Taylor said. “I not only learned critical business principles in disciplines – from accounting, economics, strategic planning and entrepreneurship to change-management – I have also put them into practice in every position I have held. My degree gave me the knowledge and the confidence to perform and grow in my profession.”
Each year, Mason awards 14 alumni, one awardee per college, the title of Distinguished Alumni. The School of Business Distinguished Alumni Award is given to a graduate who has made significant contributions through their level of engagement within the university, service to the community and professional accomplishments.
