Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation (LACDC), along with Los Alamos MainStreet and the Chamber of Commerce, is delighted to announce that Metzger’s General Manager David Jolly has been selected as the recipient of the 2020 Citizen Leadership Award from the the International Economic Development Council (IEDC).

The IEDC is the largest association for professional economic developers in the world, and has recognized nineteen leaders in the field with its 2020 Honorary & Leadership awards for achieving excellence in the profession. Nominees for these individual awards were selected through a months long process and from a pool of many highly qualified nominees.

IEDC’s Excellence in Economic Development Awards recognize the world’s best economic development programs and partnerships, marketing materials, and the year’s most influential leaders. These awards honor organizations and individuals for their efforts in creating positive change in urban, suburban, and rural communities.

The Citizen Leadership Award recognizes David as a community and business leader who plays a key leadership role in economic development. Metzger’s Hardware has been a staple of Los Alamos for more than 70 years and plays a large part in the Los Alamos community as one of the anchor businesses of the downtown. David has been the General Manager of Metzger’s for over 10 and has taken on many key leadership roles. David genuinely cares about his customers and about Los Alamos, often going above and beyond his roles in the various committees and boards he has served on by meeting one-on-one with business owners, economic development professionals and others. 

David will be honored during the 2020 Virtual Annual Conference, October 13-16th. Congratulations David!
