The Horizon Award recognizes the extraordinary contributions of an individual who exemplifies dedication, integrity, and honorable service to Northern Kentucky through community leadership.

“We are proud to partner with the Northern Kentucky Chamber to present the inaugural Horizon Award, which honors the extraordinary service and leadership of Mike Sipple Jr.,” said Nancy Grayson, president of Horizon Community Funds. “Mike’s deep commitment to supporting education, youth, and families, as well as our region, is evident through the many organizations in which he is involved. He truly is a leader who will undoubtedly continue to make a significant impact in our community in the future.”

President of the talent strategy and executive search company, Centennial, Founder of the Talent Magnet Institute, and host of the Talent Magnet Institute Podcast, Sipple is known as a leading connector in the executive search industry.

Passionate about community engagement, he serves in leadership capacities for nonprofits and private organizations including the Northern Kentucky Education Council, Pre-K Works, The Metropolitan Club, All Pro Dad, Leadercast, the Goering Center for Family and Private Business, and is a founding co-chair of the Horizon Community Accelerator.

“Those who have had the fortune of serving on a board or committee with Mike know how deserving he is of this honor,” said Brent Cooper, NKY Chamber president. “He is one of the hardest working community leaders I know. He is passionate about education, and about leadership development, on both sides of the river. He is also dedicated to his family, and is working hard to leave this region better than he found it.”

The annual dinner will take place at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center (1 West RiverCenter Blvd, Covington) on Sept. 20 and will begin at 5 p.m. with a networking cocktail reception followed by dinner and awards program at 6:30 p.m.
