PLEASANTON, Calif. — Hacienda has been awarded the East Bay Leadership Council’s highest honor -- the East Bay Leadership Medal. The Leadership Medal is the highest award given by the EBLC and is awarded annually to a business for outstanding community service and regional leadership.
"Hacienda has been an invaluable asset to the Tri-Valley community and the East Bay Leadership Council's work in the region," said Kristin Connelly, president and CEO, East Bay Leadership Council. "Hacienda has helped with important regional initiatives related to transportation and water, and played a key role in the creation of the Tri-Valley Anti-Poverty Collaborative Poverty through its Hacienda Helping Hands community initiative. They have been a welcome supporter of the East Bay Leadership Council as an organization and its presence along the Interstate 680 corridor."
"Hacienda is very proud to receive this award," stated James Paxson, Hacienda's general manager. "We believe it is important to contribute to meaningful initiatives as a form of investment in the area. This is part of Hacienda's ongoing commitment to improving those underlying conditions that make a difference in the region's quality of life and economy. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with the diverse array of business and community leaders convened by the East Bay Leadership Council as their commitment to the region is inspiring and their work truly makes a difference."
