The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce has picked land use and zoning attorney and long-time City Council meeting attendee Cathy Puskar as the Business Leader of the Year.
Puskar, a lawyer with Walsh, Colucci, Lubeley, & Walsh, is a familiar face in city government. Puskar frequently represents landowners in major development projects citywide.
“With an in-depth knowledge of the law, process, politics, and people required to achieve her clients’ goals, Cathy has successfully represented a number of clients in obtaining the necessary entitlements for a variety of projects including major residential, commercial, and mixed-use developments,” The Chamber ALX said in a release.
The Chamber ALX cited Puskar’s work in projects from Potomac Yard to Eisenhower East.
Some of her other notable development approvals include:
- New headquarters of the American Physical Therapy Association in Potomac Yard
- Mixed-use project at 2901 Eisenhower Avenue
- Alexandria Memory Care Center
- Expansion of Goodwin House
- The Thornton
- Hotel Monaco, the Morrison House and the Lorien
- The Clayborne
The Chamber ALX said Puskar also currently serves on the board of the Alexandria Police Foundation and the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce’s Government Relations Committee.
“She will be honored at the 2022 Best in Business Awards, presented by Burke & Herbert Bank, on October 27,” the release said.
