Introducing The Daily Record’s 2023 Banking and Financial Services Power List

The men and women who are the movers in Maryland’s banking and financial services industries play an outsize role in keeping the state’s economy humming.

After all, they are the ones who help businesses grow, investors achieve financial security and communities maintain their economic vibrancy.

The 30 people you’ll meet in our 3rd annual Banking and Finance Power List work at or lead a variety of institutions – from credit unions to banks, from private wealth advisers to asset management companies. But they each play a key role in the Maryland economy.

We’re pleased to profile them in this Power List.

This list was chosen by our editorial leadership. We reached out to readers and others for input and perspective. Many on this Power List are familiar to you – several have been on previous lists – but some are known mostly inside their organizations or communities.

This list is part of a series of Power Lists throughout 2023 that will showcase the leading figures in law, higher education, health care, business and other fields.

You can find this and all our Power Lists here.

If you know of someone you think is a strong candidate for inclusion on our Power Lists, we’d love to hear from you. Just go to and tell us about the individual.

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