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.
