The 2018 honorees were:

Marillyn Hewson, Chairman, President and CEO, Lockheed Martin
The Ambassador J. William Middendorf II Award

Stein Kruse, CEO, Holland America Group
The Ambassador C. Howard Wilkins, Jr. Award

Glen Hauenstein, President, Delta Air Lines
The Ambassador K. Terry Dornbush Award

Keynote for the evening was

Hank Meijer, Executive Chairman, Meijer, Inc.

The event was preceded by the Heineken Award and Lecture at noon, delivered by David Hyman of Netflix and hosted by the Netherlands Embassy and its Holland on the Hill program, a joint project of the Embassy, the NAF, the Congressional Caucus on the Netherlands and the Netherlands Business community.

The candidate should be passionate about strengthening the relationship between the Netherlands and the United States through exchanges in the arts, sciences, education, business and public affairs, and be able to lead the NAF into its second century of service.
