We have good news to share on the blog: Axiaware was chosen as a finalist for the National Capital Business Ethics Award for 2014.

From a field of approximately 70 Washington, D.C. area nominees, judges selected Axiaware after a thorough review of the business. award was formally presented by co-chairmen Liz Schwarzman and Scott Harding to Axiaware CEO Bradley Powell at the NCBEA Annual Awards Breakfast October 8 at the Ritz Carlton in McLean, Va.

"We're all extremely proud of this award," Powell said. "I've always believed that being an honest, ethical partner whom clients can trust is just good business. I take Axiaware's success as evidence of that principle. It's great to see the NCBEA work so hard to recognize companies for taking this approach."

NCBEA judges review each nominated business thoroughly, seeking clear evidence that the company's commitment to the highest ethical standards and business practices is a living part of its culture and day-to-day operation.

The National Capital Business Ethics Awards are presented annually by the National Capital Chapter of the Society of Financial Service Professionals, in partnership with the New Century College of George Mason University.

Since the first local awards were presented in 2001, companies from a wide variety of industries have been honored for the programs devoted to integrity and ethical business practices that they have developed, communicated and deployed across their organizations.
