A recipient generally has a long list of qualifications, including years of experience working in his or her profession, as well as an extensive record of accomplishment.

Man of the Year

Not only did Mr. Girardi receive a Lifetime Achievement Award, but he was honored with the IOATP's "Man of the Year" distinction, wherein Mr. Girardi was the sole recipient in 2016.

A 'Wonderful, Humble Gentleman'

The IOATP's Stephanie Cirami said:

"Choosing Mr. Girardi for both of these awards was an easy decision to make. Mr. Girardi continues to wow us and the public every step of the way and there is nothing that Mr. Girardi cannot accomplish. The man is brilliant and a wonderful, humble gentleman. We are honored to have him with us and enjoyed spending time with him during his stay in NY. We know we will be seeing more great things from this man!"
