We are pleased to share that Generational Group President and CEO Ryan Binkley will receive the prestigious Albert Schweitzer Leadership Award from Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) for exemplary leadership professionally and personally.

He will receive the honor during HOBY’s annual Albert Schweitzer Leadership Awards Gala on November 6 at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.

The Albert Schweitzer Leadership Award is the highest honor bestowed by HOBY and is presented annually to individuals who, through their leadership, have made significant contributions to the education and motivation of youth.

The event supports HOBY programs, which provide young people with leadership development opportunities throughout the world. Chris Ryan, TIGER 21 Austin and Dallas chair, is serving as the Gala chair.

Ryan Binkley provides leadership for strategic direction and oversight over all the Generational Group business divisions, covering M&A, business valuation, exit planning and wealth advisory services.

Binkley and the Generational Group are generous contributors to the Mavs Foundation, which benefits the youth of Dallas, Here’s Life Africa, which serves families across Uganda and Tanzania, and other initiatives supporting our nation’s heroes and veterans.

In addition, Binkley and his wife, Ellie, founded and are the Lead Pastors of Create Church in Richardson, TX, a multicultural Christian church with a mission to help people find and fulfill their created purpose in Christ.

“HOBY inspires young leaders to take responsibility and make a difference in their schools and communities, values shared through my faith and community work,” said Binkley.  “I am truly honored to accept the Albert Schweitzer Leadership Award from HOBY and support their work inspiring the next generation of leaders.”

“Whether it’s in business, service or ministry, Ryan’s passion is to help inspire people to live their lives as a legacy for the next generation,” said Javier LaFianza, CEO of HOBY Youth Leadership. “HOBY is proud to recognize Ryan with our Albert Schweitzer Leadership Award.”

Binkley will join the esteemed ranks of past Schweitzer award winners, including Presidents Bill Clinton, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan; business leaders such as American Airlines CEO Doug Parker and Mylan CEO Heather Bresch; current U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza; plus many more notable social good contributors throughout the past six decades.

The Awards Gala will bring together influential community members – entrepreneurs, philanthropists and educators, showcase emerging HOBY alumni, and celebrate the power of youth leadership. The event is made possible by the generous support of American Airlines, Masergy, Cushman & Wakefield, Vistra Energy and Mylan.
