Renée Lewis Glover, Chief Executive Officer of the Atlanta Housing Authority, will receive the “CEO of the Year” award at the Atlanta Business League’s (ABL) 35th Annual CEO Appreciation Luncheon, Tuesday, May 7, 2013, 11:30 am, at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.

The ABL serves as a leading organization for minority business development and advocacy in the metropolitan Atlanta area. Each year the ABL recognizes chief executive officers (CEOs) for their outstanding participation in minority vendor development and community activities.

“As CEO of the Atlanta Housing Authority, Renée Glover is lauded nationally for changing the model of public housing in Atlanta,” says Leona Barr-Davenport, President & CEO of ABL. “By creating public private partnerships for housing developments, she demonstrates that she understands what it means to service the community and help uplift those that need it most.”

In addition to recognizing Glover, the ABL also will honor Maceo Brown, President and CEO of System 5 Electronics, Inc. (Corporation of the Year); Sam Williams, President, Metro Atlanta Chamber (Distinguished Service Award); Maria Saporta, Journalist, SaportaReport (Visions of Excellence Award); and Laron Walker, President, Sciberus, Inc. (League Leadership Award).

Each year ABL members nominate leaders in the city and state for the various awards and a selection committee reviews the nominations and makes a final decision based on the best qualifications for the award descriptions.

The CEO Luncheon is a fundraising event, and this year’s proceeds will be used to support the Youth Entrepreneur Programs and the Business Enrichment Seminar Series for Entrepreneur Development. For more information and tickets, call 404-584-8126 or visit
