The Daily Record has announced its 2016 VIP List — Very Important Professionals Successful by 40 awards.
The honorees will be recognized at a reception Aug. 25 at The Pier V Hotel in Baltimore.
The Daily Record created the VIP List in 2011 to recognize professionals 40 years of age and younger who have been successful in Maryland. They are selected on the basis of professional accomplishments, community service and the impact of their achievements in the community.
“This year’s VIP List honorees were selected for the significant contributions they are making to their professions and to improving their communities,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “VIP List honorees are the ones to watch. They are the next generation of leaders across our state, and The Daily Record takes great pride in recognizing their achievements and looks forward to hearing about their even greater accomplishments in the future.”
