They have seen beyond the day-to-day demands of their organizations.
They have understood the value of strengthening their communities.
They are the icons.
The Daily Record announced Thursday it is recognizing these trailblazing pioneers in a new awards program – the ICON Honors.
“The iconic leaders of Maryland are the people who have elevated not only their businesses but the lives of their fellow citizens in our communities,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “These are the people whose contributions go beyond the here and now – they have truly shaped our business community, and our lives, for the better.”
When you think of business growth in Maryland, who are the icons who have led their businesses and our state forward, creating a thriving economy, growing jobs and making a difference in the community?
The ICON Honors will recognize Maryland business leaders over the age of 60 for their successes and for displaying strong leadership both inside and outside of their chosen field. Winners will be announced in November and honored during an awards celebration in December. They also will be profiled in an event publication inserted in The Daily Record.
To be eligible, nominees must have a long-standing commitment to the Maryland business community and a sustained commitment to community service and mentoring. They must be 60 years old or older to qualify.
Nominees, who can either be working or retired, should have held a senior management position with significant authority in decision-making for their organization.
