Lance Armstrong Named One of America's Best Leaders

Seven time Tour de France winner and Lance Armstrong Foundation founder and chairman Lance Armstrong has been named one of the United States of America’s best leaders by the U.S.

Edelman’s advocacy for the disadvantaged, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s work in transforming the field of medicine and public health, Lance Armstrong’s fight to inspire and empower cancer patients—these leaders demonstrate innovation and perseverance at an important time in the nation's history.” 

In a collaborative effort between U.S. News and Harvard’s CPL, the leaders were selected by a nonpartisan and independent committee, convened and organized by the Center, without the participation of U.S. News editors. The selection criteria used by the committee in choosing the honorees included the ability to set direction, achieve results, and cultivate a culture of growth.
