ANNAPOLIS, MD. — Randy Melville, senior vice-president of sales for Frito-Lay North America, Plano, Texas, was one of five executives recently named a recipient of the inaugural 2007 Leadership Excellence Award.
The award, which is presented by the Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership at the U.S. Naval Academy and the Harvard Business Review, recognizes top executives of U.S.-based companies who consistently exemplify a commitment to personal integrity, fellow employees and business success. The award is not for chief executives but for senior business leaders — such as the general manager of a business unit, the head of a function, or a country manager — whose decisions and leadership have a significant impact on their organizations.
"In an era of increased regulation and public scrutiny, doing right and doing well will become inseparable," said Thomas A. Stewart, editor and managing director of the Harvard Business Review. "I applaud these business leaders for proving that success without compromise is possible."
In addition to Mr. Melville, other recipients included Charles Burbage of Lockheed Martin Corp., Wes Bush of Northgrop Grumman Corp., Jennifer Daley of Tenet Healthcare Corp., and Robert McDonald of Procter & Gamble.
