The Jack Schlaifer Visionary Award is presented annually to an Executives member who has contributed significantly to the growth of the Young Executives, the young leadership arm of the organization. Jonathan Hartman has been a longtime supporter and leader of the Young Executives.

The Jack Schlaifer Visionary Award was presented by Executives Past President Jack Schlaifer, who explained that Hartman has contributed greatly to the growth of the Young Executives as well as The Executives as a whole.
