The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce named the winners of its 2015 Honors Night awards at an event Thursday night.
The chamber said the recognition program is to “represent business and community leaders with exemplary commitment to the region’s economic development and quality of life.”
The five winners were announced at the Francis Marion Hotel in downtown Charleston.
Real estate software firm BoomTown took home the Trailblazer Award, in recognition of a cutting-edge product or service.
WestRock Land and Development, the former MeadWestaco real estate division, won the Rock Star Award, for an organization’s significant achievement resulting in a positive impact on the region.
Joe Riley Park claimed the Beacon Award, for a project or structure that elevates aesthetics and improves quality of life.
Joint Base Charleston received the Pillar Award, for a longstanding organization known for excellence.
Croghan’s Jewel Box was the recipient of the Milestone Award, to a small business with no more than 50 employees for excellence in entrepreneurship, worker relations, diversity and community contribution.
The five winning organizations were selected from a group of 15 nominees that the chamber announced earlier this summer.
Also, architect Thom Penney of Charleston-based LS3P Associates Ltd. was named this year’s recipient of the Joseph P. Riley Leadership Award Winner.
