The IRAA Awards recognize the valuable and meaningful contribution to our industry of many of its executives, from young up-and-coming Senior Managers and Assistant Directors right up to Senior Vice Presidents and even some C-level executives. The contributions of these executives have been highlighted by the difficult times the industry is currently suffering with the global pandemic.
