The Daily Record has named 26 Marylanders as winners of its inaugural Icon Honors awards.
Icon Honors recognizes Maryland business leaders, over the age of 60, for their notable success and demonstration of strong leadership within and outside their fields. The honorees have moved their businesses and the state of Maryland forward by growing jobs and making a difference in the community.
To be eligible for Icon Honors, honorees must have a long-standing commitment to the Maryland business community and significant professional accomplishments through innovation and leadership. Honorees must also be champions of their industries and demonstrate a sustained commitment to community service. They may be in the workforce or retired and must hold or have held senior management-level positions with significant authority in decision-making for their organization.
Winners were selected by the staff of The Daily Record.
“Icon Honors recipients’ innovative leadership, commitment to mentoring and community engagement demonstrate why they deserve to be called icons in the Maryland business community,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “They have committed many years to making our state a wonderful place to live and to work, and The Daily Record is pleased to honor them.”
The Icon Honors awards will be presented Dec. 19 at a reception starting at 4:30 p.m. at The Center Club, in Baltimore. Winners will be profiled in a special publication that will be inserted into the Dec. 20 issue of The Daily Record and available online.
