Honor to whom honor is due!

The Editorial Board of Washington COMPOL magazine is proud to present to the world an elite group of professionals who have achieved an unforgettable legacy and meritorious accolade.
Our selection included innovative leaders whose successes were achieved despite having insurmountable challenges. We may not share in their accomplishments, but we can recognize that they left a mark.
The list includes famous professionals and some that may be unknown, as well as those who are already well established or are new; and here we recognize those we consider this year to be the COMPOL 100.
They will receive a special recognition on August 31 at the 2017 Napolitan Victory Awards 2017 in Washington, DC.
