Woman of Excellence: Alicia Wadas

LAVIDGE Executive VP and COO Alicia Wadas was honored March 8 at the 2018 Phoenix ADDYs event as she was presented the first Phyllis Ehlinger Women of Excellence Award for her outstanding contributions to the industry, as well as her dedication to philanthropy and mentorship. 

This prestigious award specifically recognizes a dynamic woman leader with an exceptional established track record of significant accomplishments in business, as well as a sincere devotion to philanthropy and mentoring—no one is more deserving than Alicia.

We are also thrilled for her billboard recognition throughout the Valley. Here is where they can be seen:

  • Two boards at 7th St. between Jefferson and Lincoln, facing north and south
  • Grand Avenue at 111th Ave., facing northwest
  • Interstate 10, south of Baseline Road, facing south

Look for her name in lights. Thank you, Alicia, for continuing to set the bar high!
