The recipient of this award is Mr. R. Allen Stanford, Chairman of the Stanford Financial Group. Accordingly, The Council is honoring Mr. Stanford for his sterling record of leadership at the helm of the Stanford Financial Group expanding economic and development opportunities throughout the Caribbean region, the United States and Latin America. The Council is impressed by the display of perseverance and creativity that has become the hallmark of Allen Stanford's lifework and vision for the future. The Stanford Financial Group including its Banking Operations have created employment opportunities for thousands of people. The Council admires Mr. Stanford's leadership in establishing Caribbean Star and Sun Airlines which have created critical air linkages for the Caribbean.
