“I am very pleased that our collective efforts to maximize the potential of the border will be recognized,” said Walshok. “LEAD San Diego continues to be a valuable partner in helping forge a closer binational partnership.”

Walshok is the co-author of “Invention & Reinvention: The Evolution of San Diego’s Innovation Economy,” a newly published book (Stanford University Press) that analyzes San Diego’s ever-changing sociological, political and economic trends.

This year’s LEAD San Diego honorees also include:

  • Genomic pioneer J. Craig Venter: Economic Opportunity Award

"Part of our mission is to inspire leadership and civic engagement on regional issues affecting our entire region," said Vicky Carlson, president/CEO of LEAD San Diego. "We are pleased to recognize leaders who give selflessly of their time and talent to make a difference in our community."
