Philadelphia-based SugarHouse Casino General Manager Wendy Hamilton is slated to receive the region’s prestigious 2018 Paradigm Award, recognizing her community-oriented leadership accomplishments.
“It’s an incredible honor to receive the Paradigm award,” Hamilton said. “Not only am I proud to join this exclusive club of Philadelphia business leaders, but this award reflects the hard work and dedication the SugarHouse Team Members put in each and every day.”
Hamilton earned a bachelor’s degree from Duke University and an M.B.A. in finance from Saint Joseph’s University. She serves on the boards of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia and additional local civic organizations; has attained numerous accolades for community involvement and corporate leadership; and received awards specifically earmarked for women’s achievement.
“Wendy is one of our region’s most influential figures and represents our community of outstanding business leaders,” Chamber President and CEO Rob Wonderling said. “She has paved the way for women in business as a successful leader of SugarHouse Casino, both regionally and nationally.”
Hamilton, a native of Philadelphia, will accept the honor at a luncheon at the Hyatt at the Bellevue from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 14, when she will be presented with a Paradigm crystal sculpture.
