AMERICAS - Carol Wallace, President and CEO of the San Diego Convention Center Corporation, has been selected to receive the 2011 Leadership California 20th Anniversary Trailblazer Award.

Leadership California represents a network of more than 1,200 accomplished women dedicated to advancing the leadership role of women and their influence in the state.

As part of a statewide tour to various regions, the organisation honoured five San Diego women, in five different sectors at a ceremony at the Omni Hotel in the city.

“I'm deeply honoured to receive this award,” said Wallace. “I’m also very proud of the SDCC’s accomplishments and of the exemplary team of professionals I have the privilege of working with every day.”  

Wallace has led San Diego’s highly-successful convention center since 1991 and oversees a full-time and part-time staff of 550 employees and an annual budget that exceeds US$32m. 

Last fiscal year, conventions held in the building generated $1.4bn in economic impact and $20.6m in tax revenues.

Wallace played a pivotal role in the facility’s expansion to its present 241,547sqm, resulting in even greater convention business, and also at the forefront of the current effort to expand the building again which her organisation says could increase economic impact by $698m annually and add another 6,880 new permanent jobs to San Diego’s workforce.
