Leigh Ann Schultz

July 15, 2015 (PRWEB) July 16, 2015 — Washington SmartCEO has recognized MorganFranklin Consulting Managing Director Leigh Ann Schultz with the Brava Award. The Brava Award honors 40 of Greater Washingtons exemplary women each year for their leadership, philanthropy, and mentorship. Schultz leads the Corporate Investigation & Dispute Solutions practice and serves as a member of the Womens Initiative Executive Leadership Committee at MorganFranklin, a D.C.-based, strategy and execution-focused business consulting firm and professional advisor.

Schultz will be profiled in the July/August issue of SmartCEO alongside her fellow winners with backgrounds in consulting, technology, and nonprofit management. All of this years winners will be celebrated at an awards ceremony on July 30, 2015, that will gather more than 300 local executives as well as previous winners.

When I say Brava at the conclusion of a play, it is both a thank-you for the artists culmination of hard work and talent that resulted in an excellent outcome, and a way to say, I wish I could see more, said Schultz. I am deeply grateful for this award and recognize that the second part of Brava, or doing more, has just begun for me more dedication to employees, more driving business growth, and more philanthropy.

After acquiring more than 20 years of Big Four accounting, industry, consulting, and regulatory experience, Schultz joined MorganFranklin to lead the Corporate Investigation & Dispute Solutions practice where she helps companies deter, manage, and remediate corporate investigations or anti-bribery claims. Leigh Ann is a dynamic growth market-focused leader advising high-growth companies and providing high-stakes solutions. She has led numerous buy-side and sell-side activities and leverages her deep experience in post-merger integration and operational process improvement. Alongside her demanding professional life, Schultz makes charity and community involvement a priority. In 2012, she brought Girls on the Run, a national program that encourages girls through interactive lessons and running games, to her daughters school and then served as a head coach for three semesters. She has served on the advisory board for Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind since 2013, and since 2014 has served on the Global Good Fund Leadership Development Council and the advisory board for Hopecam. Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind serves the visually impaired as well as those who are both visually and hearing impaired. The Global Good Fund engages high-potential young leaders in fellowship and mentorship. Hopecam supports children undergoing cancer treatment with technology to aid connection and help patients overcome social isolation.

MorganFranklin leadership was excited to nominate Schultz for the award, noting: Leigh Ann looks at a fork in the road and chooses the path that may include the most challenge but also the greatest rewards. Shortly after joining us, her contributions quickly began to shape the growth of our firm.

Exhibitus Client Yamaha Wins 2015 Best Display Award

Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) March 27, 2015

Exhibitus announced today that Yamaha Marines booth received the 2015 Best Display Award at the Minneapolis Boat Show. For 43 years, this popular upper-Midwest event has treated boating enthusiasts to the best selection of new boats and hundreds of booths showcasing the very latest in engines, marine electronics and accessories.

Congratulations to Yamaha Marine for taking home this honor, said Exhibitus President Brad Falberg. Once again its obvious that DESIGN MATTERS and that collaboration through the design process between exhibitor and designer yields superior results. We look forward to our continued relationship with Yamaha as they expand their boat show presence in the U.S.

The design of Yamahas new booth was led by Matthew Beck, an Exhibitus designer who began his career as a yacht designer. His knowledge of the physics of boating (hydrodynamics and fluid dynamics) proved a tremendous asset in the design process.

The world of boating is a world of curves, said Beck. The curved shape of the displays is a visual element that suggests movement to the boating public.

Yamahas message “Reliability Starts Here” is the anchor for the exhibit. We did not want the architecture to detract from the companys products, but rather provide a complementary vessel for Yamahas brand promise, continued Beck.

The new booth encompasses individual exhibits of Yamahas outboard families, each with

life-sized color backdrops of particular boating environments. As attendees approach the displays, they are immediately immersed in the moment of boating enjoyment the very core of Yamahas position as creator of lifetime memories on the water. At the same time, the restrained use of brushed stainless steel on the display edges and trim echoes Yamahas strength as an established, refined and premiere brand.


Exhibitus is a custom exhibit house specializing in 3-dimensional design for trade shows, corporate events, user conferences, permanent installations, museums and corporate interiors. Driven by the philosophy that “DESIGN MATTERS”, the company builds jaw-dropping exhibits that capture brand, inspire action and assure business success.
