Meet The Daily Record’s Power 100

Meet The Daily Record’s Power 100

Listen to this article

For the second year in a row, we offer readers a look at the 100 men and women who are shaping our businesses, governments, nonprofits, law firms and other key institutions.

The Power 100 List for 2022-23 focuses on the people who play an outsized role in the culture, lifestyle, civic conversation and economic fortunes of Maryland.

The list reflects the deep reservoir of leadership across our state. As our technologies rapidly change, our social challenges mount up and our economy teeters on the edge of recession, these are the leaders we count on to respond to these and other challenges.

The Daily Record Power 100 was chosen by our editorial leadership team. We reached out to readers and others for input and perspective. Many of the Power 100 are familiar to all of us, but some are known largely within their organizations or communities.

In these pages we’ve tried to capture the essence of these leaders and the power they wield. While there’s a lot of biographical information, we wanted to offer more than the contents of a resume. We sought to explore how these men and women see their accomplishments, who were the mentors who guided them, how they unwind and relax at the end of the day.

This list is the culmination of Power Lists throughout 2022 that showcased the most powerful figures in law, higher education, health care, manufacturing and other fields.

If you have a recommendation for someone who should be considered for an upcoming Power List you can submit it through a form at

We hope you enjoy this publication, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
