Corporate Leadership Award Recipient Revealed by NABLF


WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation (NABLF) will honor one of the biggest advertisers on broadcast media in recent years with the 2022 Corporate Leadership Award during the 2022 Celebration of Service to America Awards.

The award will be presented to GEICO during an in-person ceremony on June 7.

Each year, the Corporate Leadership Award is given to a leading business outside of the broadcast industry that exemplifies “an extraordinary focus on community service and corporate social responsibility.”

NABLF President Michelle Duke commented, “Through community partnerships, development projects and conservation efforts, GEICO has established itself as a corporate leader in public service. NABLF is honored to present GEICO with the Corporate Leadership Award in recognition of its incredible work to improve communities across the country.”

The GEICO Philanthropic Foundation has donated to over 7,000 charities over the past 40+ years. In 2021 and 2022, the GEICO Philanthropic Foundation and GEICO associates provided more than 3 million meals to families in need through donations to Feeding America. The company also supports various education initiatives, including Shoes that Fit. These programs provide necessary resources and support students need for school.

“GEICO is honored to receive the 2022 Corporate Leadership Award from the National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation,” said Carl Tims, GEICO’s Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer. “GEICO is committed to strengthening the communities in which our customers and associates live, work, and play. To that end, we have built more than 1,100 partnerships with nonprofits, social justice organizations and scholarship providers. And, we’re excited to extend this philanthropic culture and focus to include the NAB Leadership Foundation as they work to improve diversity and highlight community service.”

Finalists, celebrity guests, senior broadcast executives, members of Congress and policymakers will gather at The Anthem in Washington, D.C. on June 7 for the in-person, black-tie Celebration of Service to America Awards ceremony. A special one-hour production of the awards ceremony will once again be broadcast nationally on television and radio stations across the country in summer 2022.

The Celebration of Service to America Awards will also honor local television and radio stations and broadcast groups across the country for their public service and philanthropic efforts to help their communities of service throughout the year. The event also recognizes an individual for their exceptional commitment to improving the lives of others through the Service to America Leadership Award.
